...YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
Welcome to the magical world of perennial, permanent plants. We call them PERMA PLANTS.
OUR CURRENT NURSERY OFFERINGS
Why Perennial Plants?
Our goal is to offer a perennial, permanent alternative to as many typical annual garden plants as we can. Why are we so crazy about perennials? Because they're so much SMARTER! Check out these amazing advantages:
- WAY LESS WORK- Plant these once and eat for many seasons. They are permanent additions to your garden. That's why we call them PERMA PLANTS!
- MORE DROUGHT TOLERANT - Perennial plants have deeper root systems. Deeper roots = less water.
- MORE PEST RESISTANT - We've selected plants which are able to naturally fight off pests without chemicals.
- MORE NUTRIENT-DENSE - With deeper roots comes increased capacity to draw up nutrients = more nutrition for you!
- LONGER HARVESTS - Many of these plants provide food throughout the year when annual plants have long since died.
- MORE INTELLIGENCE - They have the intelligence to be able to rest and regenerate themselves and adapt to climate change.
If we are what we eat ... we want to eat SMART, RESILIENT, PERENNIAL FOOD!
The Brassica Buffet - LIMITED STOCK!
This is the perfect perennial kale & collard mix for those looking for something unexpected! A Perennial Permaculture Exclusive. Each year we grow out hundreds of perennial kales and collards from seeds we collect from around the world in addition to our homestead favorites. Throughout the growing season, we select for delicious taste, pest resistance, drought tolerance, ease of growth, and beauty. We let only the most amazing plants go to seed and collect these seeds for the next year's trials. In this mix you'll receive the very same seed mix that we will be planting in our garden next season. We call it a buffet because it's a sampling of the best we've got. Get 'em now because when they're out for the season, they're out for good. :)
Comfrey Roots & Crowns - Bocking 14
Comfrey is the workhorse of a perennial garden! It gives so much and asks for so little...and did we mention that it's BEAUTIFUL?! In addition to its gorgeous leaves and flowers, it gives us home-grown fertilizer and medicine. We grow it around our fruit trees and as a border around our veggie gardens. We simply couldn't grow the amazing things we do in our food forest without this miraculous plant.
Magic Runner Beans
If Jack really had a bag of magic beans, they would have been runner beans! Runner beans are our absolute favorite perennial bean. These beans are gorgeous, yummy, and climb to the sky with ease. We've collected rare runner bean varieties from around the world and have continued to select for perennial nature, amazing colors, and rich, savory taste. You'll receive a blend of colors from our collection and can enjoy the rich variety of colors of beans and blossoms. Once you taste our runner beans, you'll forget that any other bean ever existed.
Hi, I'm Dr. Christy!
I've been practicing natural medicine for 20 years. 8 years ago, my family and I moved to the mountains to start our family homestead. My goal was simple ... "How do I grow tons of food and medicine, that's super nutrient-dense and delicious, with the least amount of work?" The answer ... perennial plants.
We're blessed to be homesteading on a piece of pristine land in the Santa Cruz mountains that never has had a drop of chemicals touch it. Our plants are irrigated with a freshwater spring that bursts out of our mountain and all of our crops are grown organically and with loving intentions.
Hi, I'm Jadyn Sky!
I grew up eating herbs and veggies from this garden and now I help my mom package up orders, answer emails, and add my cute touches to everything. We started this food forest 8 years ago and now it's overflowing and we're happy to share the abundance with you.
