We want happy, healthy, resilient communities; and we know you do too.

Food security is a real issue in our neighborhoods ("According to the Onondaga County Department of Social Services, use of food stamps has increased locally 81% in the past four years. The City of Syracuse recognizes food access as a key issue.  The Department of Planning and Sustainability is now in the final stages of submitting a Food Access plan to the Common Council to address local food security issues."1).

The   Glossary Link Alchemical Nursery is working to build free food forest resources across the region, and educating the public in many ways about smart and ethical landscaping options that place food at the forefront, as one part of a solution.  If you had an easy opportunity to support this work, along with our other programming related to mutual aid, intentional community, and natural building, would you?

We present the "$1 for Permaculture" fundraising campaign.

If you're fortunate enough to have a secure roof over your head, and a healthy meal on your table, every night, and you are employed and making a livable wage, why not make a small monthly pledge of only $1.00 to the Alchemical Nursery?  Of course you are more than welcome to contribute more than $1 monthly, but the important part is that you become a Sustaining member by making a recurring monthly donation.

The intent of Intentional Community embodies this call for collectivism and process, and small-scale planning and organizing, that can be actualized on a human scale.    The term “Intentional community” is generally used to refer to small scale alternative communities such as eco-villages, co-housing developments, apartment cooperatives, or house collectives; but the processes and policies used can easily be brought to utilization within our current landscape of existing neighborhoods and communities; beginning with efforts to refocus local municipal governance to increase direct participation of the constituency.......

The DVD shows you various small Glossary Link Permaculture garden with Geoff explaining how they function and interact with other elements. Then we go on a Permaculture Garden Blitz. Geoff and a team of students renovate an extablish garden – the permaculture way over a period of three days. The client wants food security and to grow as much at home as possible. Geoff and his team plan the ultimate food growing solution.
