BRENTWOOD, Tenn. - Feb. 9, 2020 - PRLog -- Your Green Homestead, an online educational and entertainment platform dedicated to inspiring sustainable design, one household at a time, announced today the winners of its inaugural 2019 Highest Rated Entry Awards set at $1,000.00 this year.

Among nine contest entries posted on in 2019 for popular votes in four categories, an essay "Why is Permaculture a game changer for both urban and rural communities?" by Charles White and Ginger-Rose Krueck received all perfect 5-star ratings and the highest number of votes. Over 30 sustainability enthusiasts, including several not-for-profit organizations, registered their Your Green Homestead Community Member accounts in 2019 and cast their votes for the contest entries they found to be inspirational for sustainable design. The highest number of them voted for the winning essay.

"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," said Natalia Smothers, founder of Your Green Homestead. "I personally attended almost all of these events and gained even greater confidence that the future of our Mother Earth is in good hands. Our planet is destined for a prosperous, healthy, enlightened, and harmonious living built on the excellent sustainable design ideas conceptualized in our current time."

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.
