“Empowering people to solve problems in a practical and creative way, regenerate their environments, build resilient communities and create abundance while caring for the earth. Based on the earthcare ethics and ecological principles permaculture can be readily applied and adapted to specific cultures and climates.”Robyn Francis, Djanbung Gardens
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
What more is there to do in these times than to show up 100% so that we can be modern Earthlings in healthy relationship with the rest of the living world? We are intrinsically a part of Nature, and recognize that re-defining and creating what is possible in our cities and neighborhoods is essential to our happiness, and the well being of all LIFE on Earth.
Please feel our gratitude deeply. Know that we share wishes for abundant living, strong health, joy, and fun aplenty! Many, many thanks! Love forever.Kathy and Kelsey Detwiler
