Create Your Own Future! A Permaculture Solution Weekend

Permaculture offers visionary and practical solutions for personal, environmental and social change.

April 15 & 16

Are you seeking the tools and confidence to actually do something about what’s happening in the world? If so, we are here to support you. Imagine a life where you are completely lit up by your desire to be in service to creating a more beautiful world. You feel confident in how you will contribute and secure your skills and knowledge to create and share your dreams with others. 

Permaculture integrates the best of ancient knowledge, sustainable technologies and disciplines to help us design ecologically sound, efficient and productive ways to live in our households, gardens, communities and businesses.

Based on the principles of ecology and sustainability, this design system can be used to create landscapes that mimic nature’s patterns and yield an abundance of food, fibre and energy for all our needs.

Permaculture can be used by anyone, anywhere. An invaluable tool for homeowners, farmers, urban and rural gardeners, educators, landscapers,  foresters, neighbourhood organizers and anyone interested in sustainable living. 

Permaculture is creative, imaginative, productive and mostly – fun. We invite you to join a life-enhancing revolution and be part of building the new.
