What we're about

Public Group

Imagine using permaculture techniques and skills to create a resilient and TRULY sustainable human landscape. As we face energy, climate and economic challenges, permaculture offers one of the best "tool kits" for moving in a positive and productive direction: resilient communities full of creative abundance. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, there is some part of permaculture that will make sense for your life and your relationship to the landscape where you live and work. Join us.

We cover topics such as (but not limited to) edible landscapes, gardening, farming, renewable energy, green building, local currency, rainwater harvesting, composting, mushrooms, local food, forest gardening, herbalism, "green" living, sustainable economic systems, conservation, community-building, relocalization, transition towns, and more!
