Information & Resources

  • Urban Farming Resources

    PRI Cold Climate works to build the capacity of our urban farmers. Whether you are working as an urban farmer or simply growing your own fresh foods in your backyard, PRI will continue to provide as much education and resources as possible for urban growers throughout the year.

  • Regional Connections

    PRI is a regional non-profit, and as such, we want to support the good work that is happening in cold climates all over the world, particularly in the upper-Midwest (which we call home.)

    INHABIT explores the many environmental and agricultural issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design process called 'Permaculture'. Permaculture is a design lens that uses the principles found in ecosystems to help shift our impact from destructive to regenerative. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.
