Permaculture at Gateways
Caring for and making choices that benefit the soil, water, air and all living things.
Positively starting with the basic needs of the individual and extending to community and culture.
Equitably distribute the surplus and regulate consumption so that the earth and people's needs are met.
Permaculture Design fits perfectly with the mission of the Gateways to Transformation Farm and Retreat Center
We are actively using permaculture methods to develop the farm. When we purchased the land it already had been used for many years for livestock and growing hay. It has many structures in place, irrigation and other systems that we are updating and adapting to a more diverse and regenerative way of working on the land.
Some systems, animals and elements that are on the farm and under development:
- Annual gardens
- Forest Gardens
- Functional landscaping
- Windbreak/wildlife hedges
- Ducks, chickens
- Horses - Important for our therapy program
- Goats, alpacas
- Dogs - therapy/companion animals
- Drip irrigation upgrades
- Living spaces and learning spaces
- Camping and guest accommodations
- Workshops and events, many learning opportunities
Evolution of the Terrace Gardens
This year the terraces were used to grow lots of annual veggies! (Sorry no photos yet.)
In addition to working on our own permaculture design and developing the property we offer on-going permaculture classes to our clients and the larger community.
