The Permaculture in Action model (or how we can offer such high quality training at such an affordable price!)

Permaculture in Action developed in response to a demand for affordable, in-depth, hands-on permaculture education. We also hoped that this class would help scale up the Transition Town movement in our region and elsewhere, and that it would deepen and broaden the impact of permaculture on cultural and ecological regeneration in general in these times […]

    “I could have sat with Chuck up on our hillside and talked for days, such was the extent of his knowledge. In fact, I only planned to hire him for 2 hrs, but I was learning so much I did not let him leave.
