Felicia Alongi is a visionary and was a novice gardener. However, after her quick success with applying permaculture methods, blended with the wisdom of the Hawaiian way, she turned her backyard into a thriving, sustainable edible garden. She shares her knowledge on how to create your own backyard garden using these methods. She advocates applying permaculture principals and connecting to ancestral wisdom to grow food that is native to your area. Her passion for children and assisting them in getting involved with changing the planet, one yard at a time, is inspirational. Felicia’s Akamai (which in Hawaiin means intelligence through common sense ) Garden is a wonderful example of innovation in growing food that may inspire you to learn more about permaculture and growing your own food.
