What we're about

Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human habitats, in harmony with the larger ecosystems of which they are a part. Anyone can use it: starting where they are, with what they have.
This group is a great place to learn about regenerative design, urban agriculture, animal husbandry, edible fungi, bioremediation, aquaculture, rainwater harvesting, local food systems, alternative economics, community living, soil-building, and much much more. We try to offer one-off learning opportunities, educational work parties and opportunities to take a course to get your Permaculture Design Certificate.

Resilient Land Design Series: Soil & Grasslands (and animals & fire!)

Needs a location

There's so much great info about trees, food forests, etc., but to be most effective as agents and actionists of land regeneration, we will benefit a great deal through a deeper understanding of soil, grasslands and the roles that fire and animals traditionally hold in maintaining ecological balance. Join Starhawk and Charles Williams for this 6-session online mini-course that they offer as part of their Resilient Land Design series.
