Bread and Roses Nursery

(and gardens), Bloomington, IN
Salem Willard and Jonas Carpenter.
Bread and Roses is surrounded by the Hoosier National Forest. We look to the forest for answers and inspiration. With a focus on species that serve multiple functions in the landscape we carry a wide range of perennial trees and shrubs, herbs, berries, flowers and so much more. We utilize the design principles and ethics of Permaculture to propagate and grow plants in a manner that gives back to the surrounding ecosystem. We do this by planting at least one of every species in the gardens of the Will Holler Homestead. We also strive to build resilience in our local community by giving away tons of information with every plant! (Sorry, no mail order)

Brambleberry Farm

Permaculture-based consulting, education and stock for today’s homesteader. We began Brambleberry Farm in the fall of 2003 on land that we share with Esprí’s parents in the beautiful hills of Southern Indiana. Our garden beds lie on old meadow land that has not been touched by plow or tiller for over 30 years. Instead of plowing up the sod using heavy machinery, we created garden beds using no-till methods. We never use synthetic pesticides or fertilizers on our gardens, and follow organic farming methods. We believe that food should be healthy and nutritious not only to the consumers, but also to the larger environment.
We provide consulting services in the following areas:Permaculture design for urban or suburban home  andscapes or rural homesteads. This includes edible landscaping. Design consulting for natural building, including straw bale and slip straw. Energy efficient home design and energy efficient home landscape design. Backyard chicken and other poultry systems.

Center for Sustainable Living

The Center for Sustainable Living is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization that was formed by Bloomington residents in 1992. In 2014 the organization agreed to serve as a permaculture institute for this area. It is the mission of the Center to make available information, services, projects and networking opportunities for those interested in exploring ecologically sustainable ways of thinking, living and interacting in our community.

We are an umbrella organization which provides 501(c)3 status to projects, created by community members, that adhere to our goals.  (Please see the left menu bar  for a complete list of our projects.)  Our organization is entirely volunteer-run and depends on funds from its members to provide quality programming, events, and information about sustainable living.  We have a seven-member board of directors that meets monthly and also maintains a meeting space in the Switchyard Building on Grimes and the B-line.  Board meetings are typically held the fourth Tuesday of each month at 5:30 in the Monroe County Public Library.  Members of the public are welcome to attend; please e-mail us at to confirm the meeting schedule.

The goals of the Center for Sustainable Living are:

– to integrate human settlements and activities harmoniously into the natural world;
– to provide services, information, tools and networking opportunities for those interested in sustainable living;
– to develop projects and programs that promote more sustainable ways of living;
– to work with and support other groups with similar purposes; and
– to sponsor public events where community members may meet to exchange ideas, suggest solutions, and develop strategies to promote sustainable living.
