    All you need to do is to decide on what degree of these principles you want to incorporate into
    your garden design. Permaculture is planting natural foods in land that is maintained without chemicals and machines, animals grazing that land
    naturally and cycling natural resources back into earth to create sustainable environments.

    Unfortunately grants to start farms are very hard to come by. However a solid business plan will help you identify your best financing strategy. If you send us an email at wagn@uvm.edu and tell us where you live we might be able to help you identify some resources in your area.
