What Is Permaculture

Permaculture is both permanent agriculture and culture combined. You will learn a design system that is based on the natural world and can be applied in many ways to your life. You can expect complete immersion into creating innovative and healthy plant and social communities for urban and rural areas. The instructors are skilled growers and activists familiar with social justice and thousands of plant species. The course will impart permaculture principles and methodologies which can be applied anywhere in the world.

Permaculture is not just about growing gardens and the plant world. It also encompasses buildings, energy systems, economics, and relationships within human societies. Permaculture offers a huge storehouse of strategies and practical techniques gathered from all around the globe and throughout history. Permaculture is an international network involving tens of thousands of people.
