Kevin Bayuk rents an apartment in the Haight Ashbury district of San Fransicso. He also grows a large amount of his own food, actively composts, raises ducks and captures rainwater- total urban permaculture. One might think you need to own a large plot of land in the country to create an abundant food growing system, but Kevin proves this theory wrong on a number of counts. Often the density of an urban community is a hundred times greener than suburban areas because resources are so close together. You can walk to the store or take an electric bus over to work. Kevin shows us how he practices urban permaculture in all aspects of his life- from growing food to educating his community. Check out the Urban Alliance for Sustainability and Daily Acts for more info on getting hip to urban permaculture. Thanks Kevin!
