Fallbrook Permaculture is a semi-rural property located in the heart of Fallbrook, California. From the day we moved to the property there were 45 avocado trees (true to Fallbrook's claim of being the "Avocado Capital" of the world) and 25 citrus trees, and we have since planted hundreds of both native, and non-native plants. We have edible fruits and veggies growing all over the place, and we are just getting started! The goal is to set up naturally fed water catchment systems and little mini-ponds/ditches that follow the couture of the land (known as "swales"), which then work with nature to create a sustainable ecosystem–the ideal conditions for our very own food forest!
The house on the property is a 1950s ranch style home. The south facing windows look out across the countryside hill scape of Fallbrook. Sun light provides passive heating as it beams into the house in the winter, and passes overhead in the summer, leaving the dwelling’s thermal comfort level desirable year-round.
Guests enjoy the giant fireplace in the high-beam living room, private guest room and bath, along with the occasional outdoor movie projected onto the the screen facing our private canyon. Meals are filled with nutritious veggies from our gardens, yummy eggs from our hens, and, if we are lucky, goat milk or goat milk yogurt from our neighbors.
If you've made it to this page, you've already been cyber-introduced to our goats, chickens, and ducklings. We also share our home with two dogs (they rule the roost): a Standard Poodle named Sprocket, and an oversized Boston Terrier named Bucky. To match our black and white dogs, we have a tuxedo cat named Bindi, who is fond of gopher control. To add to the zoo, we have two European Racer Pigeons that returned home after we bought the property, and of course, the incredible Red Wiggler worms that help us compost all that we don't use on the land.
