Legacy Planting Partners:

Supporters: people who donate financially to fund the purchase of plants and materials (tools, mulch, water harvesting, etc) to create and expand permaculture projects and join in planting a legacy.  If you enjoy the harvests of the land and do not have the time or place to plant more for the future, you can do so by making a financial donation*.

Trustees: responsible guardians of the land (owners and caretakers) who donate their time and space to plant and maintain permaculture projects and join in planting a legacy.  Please contact Julia at plantingalegacy@hotmail.com if you would like to join the network of land guardians/trustees to donate your time and space and receive plants from funds in the future (all plants and materials will be shipped directly to participants and paid for with donations in advance, thereby removing any financial administrative responsibility from the gift recipients).  [No permaculture certification necessary… just a good old-fashioned “handshake”, so to speak, that you will do your best to implement and honor a permaculture approach.]

Initially, donations will fund projects on our small family homestead in the north Georgia mountains as well as friends and family across the country who own property and choose to participate in the planting.  All donation partners will receive an explanation detailing how their funding specifically nourishes the circle of life (information about plants purchased and planted along with supporting materials to help them flourish).  Once plants start producing (several years in many cases), excess produce may be offered at farmer’s markets and donated to local food banks and families in need.

*Note: In an effort to get this site and idea shared in time for Earth Day, April 22, 2012 (only a few days after the initial thought struck!), an official non-profit organization has yet to be set up for tax purposes.  Therefore, all donations are considered as gifts (not currently tax deductible) until further research and planning can be done.  Hopefully, by next Earth Day, 2013, all the administrative details will be figured out and the anniversary celebration may include a true launch of the charity organization “Planting a Legacy.”
