The Story of Permacrafters

Our Categories



Gardening is one of those wonderful subjects that Christelle, the “Permamacita”, most wishes she had learned in school. With a little effort and patience, she’s turning her brown thumb into a green one. If she can successfully grow sprouts, vegetables and mushrooms, anyone can!


We dream of living off the grid and meeting all of our energy needs. Until then, we work on bettering ourselves every day to make conscious changes to live a more sustainable life, and to “love harder” in this crazy world, as Cristina says. And we’ve been meeting pretty fantastic people along the way!


Concocting homemade herbal remedies and soothing teas, crafting safe body care products, and creating nontoxic cleaning products from scratch – these are a few of our favorite things!

We love honoring wholesome food that’s grown with care for the Earth and that nourishes our body and soul… especially sweet treats! Cristina’s mom and grandma, two fabulous ladies, turn every family meal into a food festival! They inspired her to develop her own expression of ‘lovemade’ meals: 80% nourishing food, 15% sweet treats and 5% refreshing drinks.


Turning trash into treasure, designing nature-inspired decorations or building nifty tools – this is where our imagination runs free!
