One of the first things we plan to do once we acquire land is to implement permaculture. Permaculture is a branch of ecological landscape design, ecological engineering, and environmental design that develops sustainable architecture and self-maintained agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.  It is both beautiful and effective at producing food with minimal ongoing maintenance, unlike conventional gardening or agriculture.  By implementing permaculture on the land, we will create a beautiful space that provides food to the community. This, in turn, provides a teaching element to visitors on site and increases the overall value of the space. There will be several sizes of permaculture gardens so that families and individuals can see how best to utilize the space they have available at their homes. We also plan to host permaculture workshops.
