Permaculture in New Hampshire: Cultivating Community One Site at a Time

I felt the tug to move beyond what I was cultivating in my tiny backyard garden in Keene, NH to gather inspiration from other permaculture* sites around the granite state (see “Edible Yards” article in Edible White Mountain Magazine – Spring 2010 issue).

I visited four sites in New Hampshire: D Acres in Dorchester, the 4-H Children’s Teaching Garden in Auburn, and two home sites in Barrington and Dover.  At each location, I found a common vision for sharing the harvest – sharing both the edibles harvested and the knowledge gleaned – with family, friends and the broader community.
