Visitors, volunteers and residents of Diamond Mountain Retreat Center embrace permaculture while visiting the grounds. In the midst of COVID-19, now is the perfect time to adopt the agricultural design in your own backyard!

At this time, our world is facing a devastating international pandemic known to us as COVID-19.  Now, more than ever, healing through mindfulness and ecofriendly approaches is necessary.  In a time when we are told to stay home and away from the public, permaculture is the perfect fit.  By starting your own permaculture garden, you can embrace the strength of self-discovery through self-reliance.

Learn from the permaculture garden.  The agricultural design of permaculture is self-reliant and self-sustaining.  By embracing this practice, you may also embrace the unique self-discovery of relying on yourself.

Improve one’s self by improving the world — starting with your own environment.  Permaculture is eco-friendly.  The design fulfills the environment, rather than depleting its strength.
