Home Sufficient

Project Type


Project Summary

We are slowly turning our family residence from a trashed landscape into an abundant garden.

Project Description

We bought our first home to raise our growing children in the rural town of Brigham City. We have a unique hom and a 1/3 acre lot. When we first moved in, the landscape was ill cared for, and we are now in the process of transforming it into an abundant garden.

My home is the most important place on earth for my family and me.

This is my journey to make my home and garden sufficient: that it is adequate and enough to meet our needs.

Home sufficiency is about returning to our homes and lands amid a society that pull us away.

It is about creating an atmosphere that promotes growth. A place that invites us to stay instead of get away.

Home sufficiency is about reconnecting with land, and the abundance it can produce.

It is about finding beauty of our own making and the beauty inherit in living things.

It is about family and the growing needs of children.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
