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
The picture below shows his 10 foot, 700 lb sculpture entitled Refuse or Refuge. It is installed at the Stevens Point Sculpture Park in Wisconsin.
