Our Permaculture programming is Growing! ​

The Permaculture Design Certification program is underway and we are brimming with new participants and new events. Many students seek out the permaculture classes due to their interest \ in sustainability, self resilience, growing smarter and in a changing climate of uncertainty. 

We now offer more events to learn about What is permaculture? and it’s a holistic approach in sustainable design principles to help you improve your life and increase abundance in your gardens, home and communities.
