Permaculture is a holistic ecological design system that includes powerful tools that can help us heal damaged land, rebuild communities, and create truly sustainable abundance. We teach it with a grounding in spirit—personal regeneration–and a focus on organizing and activism. In our permaculture design course, students learn how to heal damaged soil, grow food organically, bioremediate toxins, harvest water and re-use graywater, build low-cost, low-carbon housing, and so many other skills. And most of all, they learn how all the aspects of sustainability can fit together so that we can meet our human needs while caring for the natural systems around us.
