Headwaters Community Farm – Sustainability through Permaculture
Remove oneself from the urban context. Swing open the farm gate and start to build. Resist convention and adopt “natures design” in everything you do—construction of an energy efficient living envelope, treatment of waste and water, growth of food—plant and animal, showcase local neighbours and what they do. Revel in the talents of community members through invitation, engagement and sharing. Make this a rewarding life experience and use the model to remain sustainable while teaching others that these rewards originate by doing and become transferable through sharing.
