This program exceeded my expectations in many regards, in breadth of curriculum and practical experiences, in intention, in connection to community. The opportunities we were given to experience the beauty and magic of Maui astounded me. I am blown away with awe and love for our band of Hawaii farmers, activists, musicians, and friends. I grew as a person much more than I expected to.

Permaculture design is the lens through which science, indigenous practice, appropriate technology, and cultural awareness, are interwoven to create regenerative and sustainable ecological systems focused on providing for the larger community by providing for the environment.

What is Permaculture DESIGN ?

The word permaculture was coined by Bill Mollison in the mid-1970’s to describe an integrated, evolving system of perennial or self-perpetuating plant and animal species.

A more current definition of permaculture, which reflects the expansion of focus implicit in Permaculture, is ‘Consciously designed landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fibre and energy for provision of local needs.’ People, their buildings and the ways in which they organize themselves are central to permaculture design courses. Thus the permaculture vision of permanent or sustainable agriculture has evolved to one of permanent or sustainable culture.
