our work

Almost Heaven Farms provides demonstration, training, resources and research in the following fields:

Agroforestry

A land use management system integrating agriculture and forestry together in order to provide for a diversity of crops, fodder, living habitats for animals, fuel and building materials  while building soil, generating income and mitigating climate change.

Sustainable Agriculture

The production of food, medicines, building materials and other plant/animal materials using farming techniques which regenerates the environment, respects animals and cares for human communities.

Design

The application of the principles of ecology in the design of sustainable human habitats.

Aquaculture

The cultivation of plants in animals in an integrated water system such as a pond.

Earth-based Building

Using local materials such as stone, wood, bamboo and mud to construct structures bringing down the environmental footprint and cost of building.

Earth Energies

Energies which come from the earth and are economically and environmentally sound.  We use bio-gas and solar technologies in our farms.

Seed Saving

The practice of saving seeds and propagating plants using various techniques in order to maintain or increase biodiversity and food/plant security.

Medicinal Plant Conservation & Cultivation

The plants ability to synthesize different chemical compounds that are used perform useful biological functions such as medical treatment, dietary supplement and to defend against predators.

Updates

Garlic, where it came from and how to use it.

If you don’t have this one growing in your garden or hanging to dry on your roof somewhere, you should think about including it in your design and learning how to use it as a medicine. Definitely something that every permaculturist needs in their life.

Putting the “Culture” back in Permaculture

Come to Nepal and see what culture-perma looks like…
