Garden Guardian with Cardinal
Garden Guardian with Cardinal symbolizes the intersection between nature and art in the garden.

ORGANIC: relating to or derived from living matter

SAVAGE: of an animal or force of nature

Hi, I’m Katie, and this is the Muncie Permaculture Project. Here you’ll find pictures of plants, wildlife, Permaculture techniques, and art that promotes nature. I like to stay busy painting, reading sociology/anthropology/ethnobotany texts, hiking, mushroom hunting, and exploring my surroundings on bike. I’m currently a Sociology MA student at Ball State University where I’m being trained to collect data and study the social world. I hope to help people understand the importance of working with nature, rather than against it.

My partner is artist Aaron Leif Nicholson, founder of Culture Maker Design Studio. He designed a lot of the garden infrastructure, including the hugelkultur systems we have in place. Visit Aaron’s art website: aaronleifnicholson.com
