Backyard Harvest is a community-building program in urban Permaculture. The program provides both garden fresh food and garden education for homeowners, renters and neighborhoods, as well as entrepreneurial and small-scale food production training for our farmers. Our farmers contract with homeowners, renters and communities to create gardens in their backyards, maintain the gardens and harvest all of the produce weekly for each family.

Backyard Harvest is a program of Permaculture Research Institute Cold Climate -
