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.

Author: Cara

This is a really great example of living the permaculture lifestyle!

Arina Pittman’s life moves in circles with the grand repeating rhythm of the seasons. From a satellite photo you can actually see the pattern etched lightly on the earth in her round vegetable garden. Inside those nested wheels of time and tilled land, she lives her life.

With her husband, Scott Pittman, and their 5-year-old son, Sasha, close at hand, Arina intensively gardens an acre or so in the high desert community of Jacona, New Mexico, near Santa Fe. She and Scott produce much of what they eat while maintaining—even improving—the ecological balance of the land.
