Your Green Homestead announced winners of 2019 Highest Rated Entry Awards
Among nine contest entries posted on yourgreenhomestead.com in 2019 for popular votes in four categories, an essay "Why is Permaculture a game changer for both urban and rural communities?
"2019 was a great first year for Your Green Homestead online community. Starting from the ground up is always challenging and exciting at the same time. I am deeply grateful for the support of several local nonprofits in Nashville and other areas of Tennessee as well as thousands of passionate sustainability enthusiasts who were involved in over a dozen local events in 2019 posted on YourGreenHomestead.com,"
Both authors of the award winning essay are convinced of the pivotal role of permaculture principles in transforming our homesteads, agriculture, and communities. Because of this, they decided to contribute their 2019 Your Green Homestead Highest Rated Entry Award of $1,000.00 to two organizations splitting it between Permaculture Action Network partnering with musicians like Rising Appalachia, Bassnectar and Michael Franti to mobilize concert audiences to constructive direct action in permaculture projects over the last five years and GROW Enrichment At Two Rivers Park in Nashville that is applying permaculture methodology to engage and teach the local community successful restoration of urban green spaces.
