Permaculture designers make their imprint on Earth, culture and economy a positive one.
Permaculture is “Consciously designed landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fiber and energy for provision of local needs. People, their buildings and the ways in which they organize themselves are central to permaculture.” ~ David Holmgren, (co-originator of the Permaculture concept)
Earth Wisdom Permaculture blends a full Permaculture certification course with earth-based cosmology, teaching visionary and practical solutions for personal and social change.
This course gives primary attention to regenerative living systems design for a temperate climate and is taught by certified instructors who live and create within the temperate environment.
“What permaculturists are doing is (some of) the most important activity that any group is doing on the planet. We don’t know what the details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options. We need people experimenting in all kinds of ways and permaculturists are one of the critical groups that are doing that”. ~Dr. David Susuki, Geneticist, Renowned Environmentalist and Broadcaster
“We are nature, working.” ~ Penny Livingston Stark
