How a Boldly Unconventional Permaculture Property Can Help You Sell Your Home

When you turn your property into an urban permaculture demo site, a lot of people ask – What will this do to your resale value? Now, with our Calgary home sold, we can say that standing out from the crowd of high-maintenance conventional properties brought us plenty of eager buyers and a good resale price! Join Rob Avis as he looks at all the ways a permaculture property gives a return on investment: improving quality of life and the nutrient density of the family diet… saving water with a greywater system… building community with an outdoor kitchen… not to mention the curb appeal of a food forest.

Looking to create food, water and energy security (not to mention resale value!) on your own property? Watch for our annual Cold Climate Permaculture Conference coming this fall — three days of free, live, expert advice and case studies!
