Radical Homemaking: What Permaculture Looks Like in Jacona, New Mexico

Permaculture experts and radical homemakers Scott and Arina Pittman live a bounteously full life—on their own terms.

Scott restored a 5-acre swath of native wetlands near his and Arina’s homestead. Formerly overrun with invasive exotic plant species, the site is now home to ducks, geese, hawks, owls, songbirds, herons, egrets, muskrats, snakes, turtles, frogs, salamanders, trout and blue gills.
