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 that so desperately call for it.

Through a business model that relies on monetary inputs from Landowner-Clients as well as students, we created a truly win-win structure that installs high quality elements of permaculture systems for 25-35% of the cost of landscape contractor installation, and delivers a 10-day class, normally priced in the $1,000 range, for $300-400.

After the great success of the first ever 10-day Permaculture in Action class April through July 2012, we are excited to announce that we’re keeping the momentum and learning going!
