What Is Homestead Permaculture?
Growing a sustainable vegetable garden requires a unique approach to agriculture called permaculture. This type of system strives to mimic patterns found in nature in a more controlled environment. The central tenets of permaculture include caring for the earth, allowing people access to the essentials they need, and taking only what you need to care for yourself and your family. You should always return any surplus to the earth, recycling waste products back in as well.
When you grow your own food through permaculture, you should strive to avoid damaging the natural ecosystem in your garden in any way. Instead, work with your environment and integrate your herbs, fruits, and vegetables as seamlessly as possible. Work with nature instead of against it!

I am so proud to be a part of this group because I believe we are being lied to, scammed, and being fed “poison” through our foods. I am very grateful to have you bringing this information.
Dear Marjory, I just want to say with the greatest of gratitude and admiration: THANK YOU! You have produced something truly powerful and, in my humble opinion, beneficial and good not only for people like myself but for our life-giving home. Your practical but sincere respect for all things living in your background was inspiring. Many blessings and gratitude from me. I am so encouraged by your gentle, decisive teaching. I can do this!
Hi Marjory! I am Maureen from Hillside, NJ. I just had to stop my busyness and drop you a line: Can I just say, that you are just a DELIGHT !!! I try to read everyone of your e-mails with all the wonderful growing tips and other important info, and I love the presentations you create. Thank you so much.
This is such great information. We need more private citizens doing this. There is way too much conflict of interest present in the government.
I absolutely love what you folks are turning out and sharing with us. You have soooo much valuable information. I believe there is going to come a day in the near future, when everyone will want to do this. You have a great group of teachers there, which I love and appreciate--so down-to-earth and practical~ You have my greatest respect am here to to support you in any way I can.
You know, when I got bit by a recluse about 6 months ago, I watched it turn my arm red, hot and painful from the bite at my wrist all the way to about an inch above my elbow. At that point, I was really concerned about developing sepsis, and tired of the pain lol.
I remembered what Marjory Wildcraft taught about cabbage leaves, and within 2 days every bit fo the bite, pain redness, and swelling was gone. I was so astounded at the wonder of what plants can do. Even before I had dabbled a bit in herbs and eo's but that event left me with a passion to learn and practice herbalism.
I welcome your suggestions and teachings while I manage to save enough to start enrolling in the classes offered here.
