Austin Permaculture

An Austin area journey in developing an abundant and sustainable landscape.


An Introduction

Thank you for visiting my site.

My name is Kalon Kalman, but I go by KC.  I made this site to follow my permaculture journey.  I first learned about permaculture from Jack Spirko with  Jack has a solutions based podcast that teaches people to be self-reliant.  Jack partnered with Geoff Lawton to teach an online PDC (Permaculture Design Course).  I took the online PDC In May 2013 and completed it at the end of September 2013.  I was very excited to receive my certification mid-October 2013.


I live just north of Austin on a 5 acre homestead.  I first purchased the land in February 2012.  In September 2012 I started to build the house and it was completed in April 2013.  After I moved in I started to tame the land.  The landscape was very damaged from overgrazing and burn piles.  After receiving my certification I felt confident in applying this knowledge in designing and repairing my property.  This website will serve as a log to chronicle my experiences.

In gaining my certification as a Permaculture Design Consultant, I now have the knowledge to help other people.  I can now design properties into abundance.  Imagine the freedom enjoyed by people able to grow their own food.
