Rolling a tread between People and Permaculture


The Day I Said “Yes”

By Jasmine Wilborne

I’ve been journaling since I was in the 8th grade. So to be honest, a little bit lazy (in writing an original post) , glaringly transparent ¬†and to follow up on what this trip means to me I will write verbatim what I journaled on the day I said “yes” to this adventure.

How I Found Inspiration …thank you…and you….especially you…and that guy….and this girl…

By: Seth Columbia

Already I have been hearing a lot of “I wish I could do that”s and “that’s so cool I’m jealous’s”….and in a lot of ways I get it, ok thanks you dig what I’m digging cool HOWEVER I want you to get diggin too! What Jazz and I want is to take our inspiration funneled in from all of our own great inspirations, internalize it and form something tangible. It is happening and it is growing so let me share my personal development to remove some of the haze surrounding something as apparently mysterious and perhaps awe inspiring as…being alive? or i don’t know, my life? no, too… just no. how about: as an indefinite cycling trip across the country in pursuit of the eco-groove-y

So you wont have to read this whole damn thing, Bottom Line: Do what you want. Continue reading


What is PermaCycle?

By Seth Columbia

PermaCycle is an adventure, a journey, a desire for the liminal phase of transition, a coming of age, and pursuit of happiness. I am comfortable saying it feels like all those things on the inside but what is it on the outside?

PermaCycle is a cycling trip across the country that will connect Jasmine and myself with all things Permaculture related, or as many as possible. This can include small or large farms, food forests, eco-villages, homesteads, or even just backyards, its as much about the people taking action as the actions they take.

With this adventure we hope to inspire others to follow their dreams, and with this blog we hope to promote the ideas, people, and places that make this bike trip an epic journey.

PermaCycle is a lot of things, some will be planned, others might just happen, and others that wont be visible until we are far down the line long after we finish up here.
