Earth Day – Pensacola Florida

Pensacola celebrated its 32nd annual Earth day festival on April 23rd at Bayview park. We had a great time at the @earthdaypensacola festival and were marveled and inspired to see all of the community come together in reverence for this one and only beautiful planet of ours that we call Earth.

This video is a celebration of this community’s love and reverence for the Earth and all of its natural wonder. Whether through art, music, gardening, activism or just by being resonant with nature, we can all care for and celebrate this world in our own unique way.

Keepers of the Old Ways – Survival & Homestead Expo

On January 28-29th at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement in Blountstown FL, we had the great fun of going to the Keepers of the Old Ways Expo, there we got to learn about the old ways of life, how people cooked, hunted, foraged, clothed, built and so much more.

In the process we got to interview Willard Smith, founder of the Pioneer Settlement. Willard spoke to us about the importance of the old ways of life, and why we must cherish the things that got us to where we are today.

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!
