Education, Demonstration, Research, and Networking of Information for Sustainable Living and Permaculture Systems.
LPRC was founded in January of 2015 to serve as a local model of permaculture design, agricultural practices, and regenerative living strategies. Permaculture integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies – embracing the no waste, closed loop systems seen in diverse natural systems.
LPRC is currently involved in on-site research-based projects like: Food Forestry Design, Black Solder Fly Larvae Production, Permaculture Livestock Models, and Biochar Production. LPRC is in the initial stages of launching an on-site restoration of a historic homestead to serve as a working educational model for our community.
LPRC offers a variety of services to individuals and businesses in the local community who are seeking to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Services available to the public include: Permaculture Consultation and Design, Black Soldier Fly Larvae Training Courses, and Resource Recovery Program.
LPRC partners with locally owned businesses, non-profit organizations, farmers, and individuals to increase community resilience through sustainable living practices and education. Partnerships and collaborations include, but are not limited to: participation in our Resource Recovery Program, Permaculture Design and Implementation, and Education for Sustainable and Regenerative Practices.
The LPRC serves our local community as a research and educational facility promoting community resilience and biodiversity through permaculture principles.
We provide the community with tools to participate in thriving cultures built on the foundation of local, integrated, sustainable and regenerative agriculture and living practices.
