This is the first of a two-part article about using permaculture techniques to improve the profitability and resiliency of market gardens.

The purpose of this article is to introduce readers to key concepts and practices needed in the transition to a permaculture market garden- one that is more profit resilient (profitable and resilient), and to encourage this as the overarching goal of farms because it makes sense and cents.
First, we will look at defining some of the concepts behind why market gardens should consider transitioning to permaculture. Then we will introduce the Permabed system as a layout framework for transitioning to annual/perennial integrated production, and finally consider how to successfully trial perennial species for your own local profit resilient agro-ecosystem.
