Ant Village Journal #3: Getting to Work

The PDC is over and it’s time to get down to business in the Ant Village. Before getting to work on my own projects, I needed to do some bounty projects for Paul, to raise money for buying materials. There is always lots of work to do here at Wheaton labs, but sometimes the weather has other ideas. A little rain is always welcome though, and it gives us time to get to know each other better. Together, we are working to build a permaculture community, one day at a time.


The Ant Village Challenge: Creating a Permaculture Homestead in Montana

The yard conversion project in San Diego is finished for now, and everything is looking great!  I can’t sit still for long, so it is time to start a new project, this time on an even bigger scale, and in a much different context.  Check out my new video to see what it is all about.

Earth Care Design: Answers to Your Permaculture Questions

I have just launched a new service at where people can submit their questions about gardening and permaculture, and I will help them find the answers.  I’ve spent the last 4 years dedicating my life to studying permaculture, following my passion to learn all I can about this system of design which I truly believe has the power to change the world for the better.  More and more, people are coming to me with questions about their gardens, or how to use more permaculture in their lives, so I am taking that as a cue to start sharing what I have learned in a bigger way. is the portal for that mission.  All the information is shared free of charge, with donations gladly accepted and much appreciated.  My hope is that as this service grows, it will help me transition to a right livelihood in which I am fully supported through sharing my knowledge and passion for permaculture.
