“Mississippi family uses ‘permaculture’ methods for sustainable food source”

Environmental concerns, the sluggish economy and a desire for quality organic produce led Dan Patrick to the study of permaculture and the creation of a sustainable garden.

“It’s a good skill to have,” Patrick said of growing fruits and vegetables at his parents’ home in a Byhalia subdivision.

Patrick, 22, and his family started the garden in the fall using many techniques of permaculture, which advocates sustainable gardening that minimizes environmental impact. Permaculture entails the design of ecological habitats and food-production systems and encourages a synergistic relationship between humans, plants and animals.
