Welcome to Mariposa Amarillo. We are a 600 acre Permaculture and Natural Building development, reclaiming a played-out gravel pit in the name of eco-friendly living. 

We want to build a community based on the principles of permaculture: 

  • Observe and Interact
  • Catch and Store Energy
  • Obtain a Yield
  • Apply Self Regulation and Accept Feedback
  • Use and Value Renewable Resources and Services
  • Produce No Waste
  • Design from Patterns to Details
  • Integrate Rather than Segregate
  • Use Small and Slow Solutions
  • Use and Value Diversity
  • Use Edges and Value the Marginal
  • Creatively Use and Respond to Change.
  • We also want to make a profit and have fun!

We hope that you will find this website (and this idea) useful, compelling, and engaging.
