Permaculture – Long Island, NY

This site has been developed by and for the community to share and take part in. It is a space where people can document their experiences and relationships they have with the diverse botanic ecology that defines Long Island, NY.Plants are defined by the elements that make up the days and nights of the area they live in. When I spend time in the garden, I develop a friendship with it. We go through the seasons together. It provides an incredible amount of enjoyment for me as I get excited for “Springtime!”, nurturing young seedlings and watching them grow. And after it has shined in the sun for a while, it gives up its warmth and nourishment to its brother or sister in the form of “compost.” YeeeeaaaaaAAA COMPOST!

    This sounds very interesting. I’d like to know more like who/what/where/how and so on.

    I was looking over your blog and it is very well written. I’m trying to raise awareness for my website and product which is high quality garden seeds that are packaged using recycled magazines. I think most seed companies are irresponsible and don’t care about the environment. I was wondering if you would be willing to post a short story about my product, that is if you like it and the idea. Check it out at http://www.ufseeds.com. Let me know what you think!

    This sounds awesome! I am new to Long Island and would love to find a permaculture meet-up or community to share ideas and learn from!

    I am looking for a place to buy native Long Island low bush blueberry plants (about 6 ) and other native plants. All I find are wholesalers.
