About Us

We’re two young folks who share a passion for natural beauty, fresh food, and a good, simple life.  Our shared experience in organic farming, permaculture design, agricultural research, herbalism, homesteading and the endlessly interesting fields which branch from it and are too numerous to list finally led us to the country to achieve our goals. Since making the move to our small town in Michigan, we’ve been working hard to establish our 2.2 acre site. From the fruits of these labors, Augusta Creek Permaculture was born.

We are believers and we are doers. We are constantly starting projects, planting seeds, trying new recipes, and crafting herbal products. It’s an exciting and fulfilling journey and much is learned along the way. This blog documents some of our musings and details some of our favorite discoveries in the kitchen and the dirt. We hope you enjoy our little slice of sunshine.
