Bending Oak Permaculture Farm is a demonstration site that shows people what is possible as we move towards a more sustainable society. Whether you live on a farm, in the suburbs or in an apartment, come learn and experience firsthand how to create an abundance of the food, energy, and materials we need to not only survive, but to thrive, while also caring for future generations of human and non-human beings.
Gain a better understanding of the thought process that goes behind permaculture design.
Gain an introduction to safe foraging and start partaking in the grocery store of various edible plants just outside our back door.
Take a deep dive into the great and mysterious soil beneath our feet and see how to quickly and organically create healthy soil! .
We will demystify plant identification through key characteristics and features we can train our eyes to look for.

Permaculture, a morphing of the words permanent and culture, is a process of design that draws on the patterns and systems found in nature to ultimately create a culture that is beyond sustainable. Once established, a sound permaculture design continuously regenerates itself with little to no human input.
We constantly hear about the impending consequences of global warming. Often the narrative states that we will not be able to change our course in time, and the cost of fixing the problems before us is too high.
Permaculture provides a realistic framework in which we can work towards stopping or reversing global warming from its source. It uncovers surprisingly simple, attainable solutions that we can use to repair our environment—from soil, to water, to community.
