Meaning or our name
The name 'Garnense' is a combination of 'garnerinfo-icon' (gather or collect) and 'common sense', in our eyes that's whats its at all about regarding self-sufficiency: 'common sense harvesting'. In a well-functioning ecosysteminfo-icon, such as a Forestinfo-icon Garden based on permaculture principles, harvesting is all you need to do, besides some simple maintenance. The key lies in the designinfo-icon, this how we workinfo-icon at Garnense as well, the strategyinfo-icon starts with good observationinfo-icon, thoroughly ponder it and then apply it. In the base, the broad outlines of such a design are relatively simple, but along the way you fill that increasingly, according to the same strategy: look, think and do.
