The Permaculture Apartment

Don’t let not having any garden hold you back from growing your own food, having a sustainable lifestyle or doing a Permaculture design course. Permaculture can be applied to the smallest of spaces and still result in the creation of abundant diverse yields and the reduction of waste. 

This is clearly shown by a former student in her beautifully informative website about creating a regenerative permaculture lifestyle in her apartment, from growing mushrooms to small scale aquaponics. This elegant site is packed with all sorts of useful hints and tips on how to create your own apartment paradise, help save our planets biosphere, while having a whole lot of fun in the process.  Be the change you wish to see in the World, join the permaculture community!

My name is Naomi Stephens, navy wife, former personal injury lawyer, and now a certified permaculture designer. I completed my design course with Permaculture Kernow in 2020, with Joshua Gomez.
My website was born out of an assignment given in the Permaculture Kernow course.
It was the dragon dream assignment, I was asked to think of a dream that would benefit myself, other people, and the world, and that way the whole world would be rooting for me.
I already had experience creating websites in the past, so I decided to share my research about regenerative methods in a city apartment on the net. This turned out to be a great way to delving deeper into the possibilities of being sustainable at home.
I also felt there’s a plethora of information on how to practice permaculture if you have a decent outdoor space, but there isn’t enough information for the many of us who live in apartments with limited or no outdoor space.
A lot of people are really surprised at what can be done at home and have never heard of things like aquaponics and bokashi composting. So I wanted to make it easy for people to understand.
This website is a very fulfilling endeavor because I enjoy writing and research from my previous career in law, and permaculture will always be a passion of mine.
