Oregon Permaculture Advocate, Jan Spencer

Sustainably-designed, holistic agricultural systems offer a cascade of benefits to suburban communities.  Jan's quarter acre suburban property in Eugene is a permaculture Shangri-La – which makes visible the potential for millions of suburban homes. Grass to garden, edible landscaping, solar design, 6500 gallon rain water catchment system, reclaimed car space, remarkable biodiversity, increased residential density, home economics, stacked functions, aesthetics and uplift.
