Gateway Permaculture Design Course Registration
Are you ready for the next step in becoming a changemaker in your own community? Would you like to learn how to apply permaculture to your own life and your community?
Permaculture is an ecological design lens largely based on indigenous wisdom to view the big-picture perspective of earth and its inhabitants. Permaculture examines the interconnectedness of living systems on earth and how we can observe and interact with these systems in ways that increase the health and well being of all life on earth.
We will be diving deep into social applications for ecological problems.
