What is permaculture?
"Permaculture is an ethical system of design which reintegrates humans with the natural world." - Rhonda Baird
Permaculture is a design system which cuts across world views. It's a network of people dedicated to a resilient world. It's grounded in earth repair, care of people (including you!), and sharing the abundance while turning away from economic and social manipulation.
Get a new perspective
Learn to see the world in a new way…
Whether you are interested in taking a Permaculture Design Course or a workshop on a topic related to healing the earth and its communities, a little support can go a long way.
We facilitate learning, and we have for hundreds of people.
Make it do-able
Information is not the same as experience and guidance. We are experienced at demystifying the concepts and helping people see how all the moving parts fit together in a do-able plan. Through our courses, people gain the confidence.
Sometimes you just want a bit of support after your permaculture design course. Or you would like to learn more about permaculture in a supportive, one-on-one environment suited to your interests and needs. I (Rhonda Baird) have worked with permaculture education and had my own design practice for more than a decade. In that time I’ve connected with teachers and programs all over North America; and I find that I enjoy this kind of connection and support.
This is so fun! I love how I see the world now!
What Rhonda brings to the course is so valuable. More of that!
