These are uncertain times, we face the triple challenge of the end of cheap oil, climate change and prolonged economic austerity.
We cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them – Albert Einstein
The challenge of our times requires new thinking. Permaculture integrates whole system design with ethics of care for the people and all living things while reinvesting surplus to build solutions that are regenerative.
If you want to take positive action towards a more resilient and healthy lifestyle for yourself, your family and your community then taking the Permaculture Design Course with us will support you.
