Perma Culture 10K

hosted by

Cosmic was inspired by our obsession with creating an environment that embraced the principles of permaculture, sustainability and regenerative systems.  We utilize rainwater harvesting, chicken coops, on site composting, biological ponds, raised-bed, rainwater, and waterfall gardens that attract pollinators and provide us with herbs, nuts, vegetables, eggs and fruit. Created by native Austinites, we’re inspired by our local culture and heritage – and showcase local art, music, purveyors, and craft community. Cosmic is a nationally recognized wildlife habitat providing shelter, water and food sources for a variety of creatures. Feel free to explore the grounds and ask questions!
