Permazone is a proposal based in permaculture. The proposal designed by Daniel Cartagena, Marny Pereda, and Sam Picardal is a large botanical garden that also has hydroponic labs that allow for the community to come and learn about the benefits of growing their own food at home. The botanical garden focused on an array of plants that reflect the once thriving L.A. River ecology.
The diagram showcases the 4 crucial elements that make up Permazone.
