First Blog

How does this thing work? I'm just supposed to spit all the things I am interested in onto this page? Alright that's cool, here it goes. Permaculture is my life. When my mentor Patrick first started lecturing me, I thought "this is what i will do with my life." It just made sense. If I can help educate and design this sustainable systems around the world, why not? So we got the ball rolling by putting together a set of objectives to complete. Hopefully one day these objectives can be used when Patrick's permaculture internship program is set in place at Sunrise Ranch. Although i have only completed a couple of these objectives so far, I know that I am helping something bigger form. With Patricks ideas and innovations, we can create a program that changes the lives of many, and eventually changes the world. Permaculture is life!


  1. bravo Hans. i love it.
    can't wait to see where you take this.

  2. Hey there Hans! I'm excited to see your first thoughts, and have something of yours to think about.

    How did you first arrive at permaculture as such a passion?

    My story starts with cooking, in which I wanted to have the freshest, best ingredients from as close to me as possible. My grandparents gardened for necessity, my parents gardened out of leisure, I garden as a lifestyle.

    Living in an urban neighborhood, and teaching at an urban school, I recognize permaculture as an essential path to ensuring the health of the people I care about and the people that care about me.

    Look forward to hearing about your thoughts!

  3. I'll definitely be following your blog! I know next to nothing about permaculture but it sounds very intriguing. I'll be looking forward to your posts.
