Description: Valley Permaculture Alliance works to inspire sustainable urban living in the desert southwest. <br /><br /> We are a thriving non-profit serving the Phoenix Metropolitan area. VPA was established as a volunteer-run, non-member dues organization with the purpose of inspiring sustainable urban living through community education, involvement and cooperation. <br /><br /> From the beginning, VPA has been committed to promoting the conscious design of cultivated urban ecosystems to include diversity, stability and resilience. Starting with classes offered to the public in composting, gardening, and planting fruit trees 10 years ago, the evolution of the organization has been driven by a commitment to enhance our urban environment through sustainable practices. VPA is driven by a strong ethical focus on the following principals: <br /><br /> •Care of the earth •Care of the people •Return the surplus <br /><br /> Permaculture is a term that combines “permanent” and “agriculture” and addresses sustainability and interdependence of human and natural ecosystems. "Permaculture is about sustainable human settlements. It is a philosophy and an approach to land use which weaves together microclimates, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water, management and human needs into intricately connected, productive communities.” (Bill Mollison from Intro to Permaculture). <br /><br /> Everyone, young or old, home owner or renter, who is interested in building a more sustainable community is welcome. Our events span the spectrum of interests, including small scale container gardening, production gardens, urban orcharding, food forrests, native foods, composting, raising chickens, preserving your harvests, and much more!
