An ideal productive landscape of any scale starts with education. Since 2009 I've worked to bring the best education on regenerative living to students.

Problem

Solution

Doom and instability are easy to come by, and in today’s world we face a crisis of rapidly changing social, economic, and ecological conditions. It’s easy to get overwhelmed trying to solve the challenges of our times. How can we meet our needs, without destroying the resources and conditions necessary for our survival?

Permaculture is an ethics-based design system that teaches us how to create regenerative, living systems, integrating aspects from soil, water and climate to social and material resources. The result? Adaptive systems designed to provide long-term stability by harnessing ecological and human capital.

buffer impacts of climate, water and energy instability

reduce vulnerability to unpredictable events

enduring safeguards for energy, food and livelihood
