The 12 Permaculture Principles

I am your host Tony Teolis and I am keeping track of things to do for a better life. Coming to you from Northern Virginia in the USA. This is Permaculture In Action.

I created Garden Hacking Secrets For The Suburbs BURBGROW because I have been gardening for a long time and I want to share with you the best ways to grow food and flowers in the suburbs.  You can have great food without working too hard or spending too much money. I use this website and related social media outlets to document the development of that project which began in 2009.

Reliable Source for Growing a Food Forest in the Suburbs

When I have an unusual idea there are usually many unforeseen challenges and gardening was certainly one of them. However, slowly with one garden at a time interconnecting to others and woven into a food forest my vision became real. I imagined walking through the backyard and every where my arms reach they touch food and flowers and it’s here!
