We are changing our name to more closely reflect our mission. We are focused on spreading the knowledge and practice of permaculture everywhere, to create more abundance, resilience, quality of life, and healing of both people and the earth.
Our projects include using permaculture to improve conditions in high poverty urban and rural areas with degraded lands, and working with schools, governments and organizations to educate people on the regenerative possibilities of conscious design. We create demonstration sites so people can see, feel, taste and smell what that is like.
These are non-profit activities that are supported by our for-profit education and design business. We offer high-quality education and aesthetic edible landscaping and other permaculture services via this service.
We feel that a Permaculture Guild has a very specific function of coordinating permaculture activities in an area and providing support and resources for professional permaculture designers and those who want to become professionals. While we do provide support to the permaculture community in a number of ways through volunteering and other resources, we feel a better way to describe the relationship is as a sponsor of Guild activities. It is not our main function to coordinate or facilitate all of the permaculture activities in our area, as a guild would do.
We love the abundance and regeneration inherent in the word “Grow” and we feel there is nothing more appropriate or needed than nurturing and growing the concept and practice of conscious design – far and wide!
