The Harrison House Arts & Ecology Center is dedicated to the practice and teaching of drylands permaculture and to providing a place for artists to explore the intersection of art and ecology.
We are committed to practicing & teaching accessible home-scale solutions for:
– Sustainable water usage
– Local food production
– Building soil fertility and sequestering carbon
Our current projects include:
– Rainwater-harvesting earthworks to support native trees for food, shade &
– Rooftop-rainwater-harvesting systems
– Greywater-fed “oasis zones” for fruit production
– Soil regeneration
– Propagation of edible and medicinal native plant species
– Water-efficient vegetable gardening systems
– Growing the local culture of ecological awareness and stewardship
– Arts and Environment residencies and volunteer programs
To learn permaculture is to become literate with the art (patterns) of nature
and as humans to learn to live more regeneratively within her systems.

I’ve taken a number of PDC’s and permaculture related workshops
over the years. This was one of the most powerful.

I am still reveling in the wonderment of the past two weeks.
Warren’s special way of teaching will stay with me forever.
