Growing Wild LLC Now Offers Permaculture Solutions in the D.C. Region

Oct 01, 2015 11:16AM
What is permaculture? Definitions of permaculture are numerous and seemingly diverse. According to Bill Mollison, co-creator of the word, “Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments.” Growing Wild, LLC, is now offering a service to area residents to incorporate permaculture solutions into their daily life.

Mollison’s concept of permaculture focuses on “thoughtful designs for small-scale intensive systems which are labor efficient and which use biological resources instead of fossil fuels. Designs stress ecological connections and closed energy and material loops. The core of permaculture is design and the working relationships and connections between all things. Each component in a system performs multiple functions, and each function is supported by many elements. “

These are concepts that can, with the correct guidance, be incorporated into any home.

Growing Wild, LLC can help you design solutions for your home or business, specializing in suburban applications in cool temperate regions. They can teach integrated solutions for the home and garden that will help save time and money, while helping the environment. The Growing Wild team can help to reduce food and energy waste while helping to keep our water clean.

They offer comprehensive site analysis in the form of a Permaculture Design Plan (PDP) and can apply those solutions with a highly customizable Implementation Plan (IP), building on your ideas. Ask about their free analysis.
