The Mission

To bring educational opportunities to the  Greater Cincinnati area in Permaculture, Green Building, and Sustainable Living.

The Vision

To create a non-profit organization that serves as a parent organization for a network of urban farms, urban gardens, Permaculture demonstration sites, educational workshop providers, local entrepreneurial enterprises, and other organization members involved in promoting Permaculture principles, green building technologies, and sustainable development.  The organization will provide promotional, fundraising, and administrative services to students, educators, and the general public.

This land offers a great resource for locals who want to utilize often hard to find permaculture plants to fill in the food forests and edible landscapes.  They carry large grafted trees,  common and rare small fruits, vines, herbs of all sorts, and seedling stock of various nuts and fruits.  Our new site is adjacent to Building Value in lower Northside.

The Eco Garden is located at 1718 Main St. Cincinnati, OH.  This location is the center point from which Permaganic's activities radiate, with our headquarters next door.  Permaganic's life-enhancing programs share the the agricultural lifestyle with diverse groups of people.  Under the leadership of Luke and Angela Ebner, Permaganic  is currently converting the once farm-style plot in the middle of Cincinnati into a permaculture paradise with fruit trees, native plants, berries and labyrinths. The garden also includes annual fruits, greens and vegetables.   The majority of the Permganic's educational programming occurs at this location.  Visitors are welcome, please contact us ahead of time as hours vary.
