Permaculture Design Immersion Course in British Columbia


“Observe nature thoroughly rather than labor thoughtlessly.”

-Masanobu Fukuoka


In order to transform the world and create a more sustainable existence, we must first take responsibility in our own lives and in our community.  Our collective actions towards this abundant future must be empowering, intentional, and self-correcting.  The solutions to our common problems are found in the vital study of the ecosystems that surround us, both constructed and wild.  The necessary practices to overcome any obstacle are revealed in our demonstration that all things, no matter their size, are a larger part of the whole.


"You sparked a fire, you have inspired me to live life with continued happiness and share the knowledge I have gained with everyone."

-Stella G.
