The Eco-Garden Youth Program on Main St. – Cincinnati

(A philanthropic living laboratory & educational outreach program of Permaganic)

Located at 1718 Main St. in the edge of Cincinnat’s historic inner-city neighborhood, Over the Rhine, the Eco-Garden is Permaganic’s own living laboratory. The Permaganic Eco-Garden works hard to pioneer new techniques for Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share. Since 1998, the Eco-Garden has been the site of a  job readiness training program for at risk youth, providing them with a stipend and earth-based education. In 2012, we debuted a new program where donors pay for CSA shares which are distributed to needy families, along with educational materials about the produce they are receiving. It employs a diversity of practices including bio-intensive, bio-dynamic and Permaculture practices. It has a biodiverse food forest and rain gardens to manage water runoff.

The Neem Karoli Baba Ashram & Hanuman Temple – Taos, NM

(Honorary)

Inspired by the messages of love and service by Neem Karoli Baba, an Indian Saint and western student, Ram Dass, they have been feeding and housing people for decades now free of charge. Recently they have implemented a Permaculture plan to supplement their  twice weekly free meals and free housing for the community. This is founded on centuries of sustainable agriculture and architecture by the Native Tewa Tribe and Spanish settlers and is now carried on by these new stewards of these centuries old practices, complimented by modern ecology and design.
