My projects in permaculture combine my life experiences: growing up on an old farm homestead (East coast), living on intentional communities in my 20's, building passive solar adobe homes in New Mexico, organic gardening for a decade in Santa Cruz, CA, and my career as a holistic nutritionist. Melding permaculture, soil ecology and my advanced training in nutrition and functional medicine—with its concern for optimizing human wellness rather than waiting for disease to strike—brings unique insights to raising the most nutritious foods. Do you know the key to increasing phytonutrient levels in your crops? The answer surprises most people.

A professional landscape architect designed our multi-tiered hardscape. From there we took over to create a 1-acre permaculture paradise: culinary and medicinal herbs, perennial vegetables, edible flowers, rain garden, pond with waterfalls, ducks, rabbits, forage crops, cryptocrops for on-site foraging and over 70+ varieties of unusual and heirloom fruits/berries/nuts. We find joy in smart systems and stacked functions, like our combined shed x compost bins x rabbit hutch with rainwater-harvesting roof (all in a 12 x 4' footprint and within a pitchfork's reach of the duck's hoop coop).

Cache Soil-to-Table is our not-for-profit venture aimed at increasing community awareness of local food and permaculture. We offer internships through the local college, host bi-annual tours, workshops and a harvest gathering.

For years, I've wished there was a centralized place where Permie-Folks could search and discuss properties for sale, as well as list Permaculture Properties.
It's sad when I see gorgeous, low- or reasonably-priced real estate listings with natural buildings, solar, rainwater catchment, perennial plantings, etc and think of "regular" homebuyers undoing all our hard work!  

So I've launched The Permaculture Properties Project a padlet of properties of interest to permies. (I am not a real estate agent. This is a not-for-profit project).
It covers the US at this point and is divided into columns for 5 regions.

Anyone can post properties of interest. Just double click and add video, PDF, link, description, comments etc. (moderator will approve).
If someone tours a property, they can share helpful comments or insights about the site.

Another benefit is that permies can see the different prices of real estate across varying regions.
There are some very AWESOME properties in MAINE on the board right now!
Properties highlighted in RED = UNDER $50K, PURPLE = UNDER $100K.
Use keyword search to find items of interest, like "off-grid" or "solar" or "cross-fenced."

It's sad when I see gorgeous, low- or reasonably-priced real estate listings with natural buildings, solar, rainwater catchment, perennial plantings, etc and think of "regular" homebuyers undoing all our hard work! And when a property adjacent to my 20-yr mature permaculture holding came on the market, I was thinking how cool it would be to have Permies for neighbors.

Gorgeous property? Is it still available?
It would be great to have it listed on The Permaculture Properties Project which lists properties of interest to permies. (I am not a real estate agent. This is a not-for-profit project).
