Gary Roberts Farm

The Roberts Farm is a seven-acre parcel located in Southern Illinois near Crab Orchard Refuge within the Shawnee Forest. Primarily, the intent of the farm is to train potential practitioners in all areas of the Permaculture system, but also to support the inhabitants with all their basic necessities met in an ecologically balanced manner. The design for the farm is deliberately comprehensive and covers all bases: climatic factors, landform and water, access and circulation, agriculture, animals, soil fertility, aesthetics, and the built environment.
