Current agricultural research is teaching us the importance of relationships. Permaculturists are discovering how with the right design, farms can become ecosystems that decrease maintenance and increase yields. Permaculture farmers are learning to let nature do more of the work.
While this new science is being used more and more with permaculture farming it has made little impact on what is closest to us–our own yards. Edible Design is working as part of a growing edible landscaping movement to merge food with lifestyle. We believe it is the fulfillment of true local food, to eat by simply stepping outside our door. We believe people should have a relationship with the food they eat.
