Welcome to our Aviary!

Kai: Here is a tour of our aviary/coop! It’s home to our chickens, quail, and pigeons. I am excited to have added all these wonderful birds to our mini homestead, as I feel my personal connection and place in the permaculture world is really through the animals. I have watched birds and nature far longer than I have propagated plants, so working with animals feels a lot more natural to me. I should also mention that our Pensacola permaculture endeavors are in a city-chicken approved area, so our miniature homestead is not rural, believe it or not. It really doesn’t take much space to get started with chickens/permaculture gardening if you get creative! .

I hope to capture our progress as we move further into spring, as I am hoping to hatch some chicks this year. But for now, enjoy the tour!

Winter Veggies to Grow in North West FL

Arianna here bringing you an assortment of veggies that I have found to be abundant and useful to grow during the winter time here in North West Florida. NW FL is a unique zone where temperature can flux between hot and cold, making it sometimes difficult to grow certain varieties of plants. But once you learn the right plants to work with, it is much easier to have a productive garden that grows delicious veggies for you all year round!

And because of the current issues in the world, being able to procure your own food is important, and it does bring you a sense of being secure in these times.
