Sweetgrass Farm Opportunity

I am looking for an energetic, permaculture wise, young couple (20s-30s) to help me create a small market and educational permaculture farm. This is a long-term farm opportunity with much flexibility and creativity as to how it can work and unfold. The 4.8 acre farm is located NW of Vero Beach, Florida, nestled in an [...]

Design The Flow Of The Land With Permaculture Zones

When I bought my 4.8 acre property last year, I spent many mornings and evenings walking the land just feeling and observing, which happens to be the first of the permaculture principles. I would have been lost as to where to begin without my new understanding of permaculture zones. I was so grateful to have [...]

Florida Native Plants And Tropical Flowers

I recently encountered a young couple selling Florida native plants at the local farmer’s market. I was not necessarily on a mission to buy any, but I came home with nine of them. I already had an Elderberry and a Milkweed, and since the price was right for many I had researched, I decided to [...]

Friends who come to visit here at Sweetgrass Farm are fed bountiful, fresh food [...]

Little By Little Permaculture Progress

Since my tree-trimming birthday in mid-September, work on Sweetgrass Farm has been non-stop. Each day I mentally chant my “little by little” mantra to prevent overwhelm as I watch permaculture progress being made, slowly but surely. I remember the legal pad my Dad kept by the kitchen table in which he made his lists of [...]

Tree Trimming Birthday With A Waterfall Gift

I had only been at the new property for a few weeks when it was time to begin work at Sweetgrass Farm. No rest for the weary after a tedious move under the hot, Florida summer sun. I was excited to leave the story of stuff behind, and begin my intimate connection with my natural [...]

The Perils Of Planetary Dominance

Trees are poems that the Earth writes upon the sky.                                                                                                     Kahlil Gibran Humanity is intended to live and thrive in harmonious alignment with our planetary Mother, and yet, we have wittingly and unwittingly chosen the mindset of planetary dominance. Runaway, exploitative greed on the part of governments, corporations and industries has reduced our planet [...]
