Plants and Seeds – Spring 2020

Happy Spring!

My urban micro nursery is stocked up with edible, medicinal and habitat plants and seeds!

With the current coronavirus situation, I know a lot of people are feeling it’s more important than ever to grow food and medicine in our neighborhoods. There are many other reasons to increase our food security as a community, to relocalize our economy and to make our households and neighborhoods more productive and resilient. I’m happy to help you find the right plants for your space and needs!

How to Order
Email your order to mulysa@resiliencedesign.com and we’ll arrange a pick up time at my North Portland Nursery, following safe distancing best practices.

Design Your Own Yard – February 2020

I’m offering a winter session of my design your own yard workshop. Registration is open now. Space is limited to 10 students.

Create a plan for your yard using permaculture design principles. A series of 4 collaborative work sessions will guide you through the design process, plant selection, budgeting and making a plan of action. Starting with a look at the flow of energy, water and nutrients in our household ‘systems’, we’ll chart a path towards a more efficient, useful, beautiful and realistic yard for you. This class will build on what you already know and draw on Mulysa’s extensive experience designing, building and maintaining urban homesteads. You’ll leave with a plan for your yard!
