Learn, Grow, Thrive

Hi, I'm Heather Jo Flores, author of Food Not Lawns, How to Turn Your Yard into a Garden and Your Neighborhood into a Community.

Welcome to my permaculture learning hub, where I have compiled 25 years of content and experience, to provide you with a vast library of online resources.

Here you'll find a selection of affordable, self-directed courses, supported by a friendly, thriving online community, all designed to help you grow more food, live more closely with nature, and take better care of the planet.

And, because I know how hard it can be to gain access to land, everything I share emphasizes DIY, low-budget, small-space solutions.
