follow link Jennifer Wadsworth lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her two cats and four chickens on a small urban property in the Midtown Historic District. She is a Permaculture Research Institute Certified Permaculture Designer, Arizona Master Gardener and the “Crazy Garden Lady” of her neighborhood.
source Jennifer’s always on a quest to find out what does and doesn’t work on her urban, dryland property. She has three major goals:
- Stick as close as possible to her site’s water budget.
- Grow shade, shade, and more shade!
- Grow edibles in the most desert eco-friendly way possible.
- Oh – and grow community at the same time. That’s always a component of any project. (yep – that was a fourth goal. Consider it a bonus goal that emerged from the first three goals.)
