Our non-profit volunteer work at Grow Permaculture is focused on assisting some of the highest poverty and most oppressed areas on the planet, which are also very culturally rich with much to offer. We focus on projects that regenerate degraded lands and devastated economies so these communities can become self-sufficient and experience resilient abundance. Our methods are focused on connecting resources and knowledge and putting them in the hands of the people at grass roots level so they can create their own destinies within their own cultural context.
We offer our courses and services for free to individuals from those impoverished areas and also bring resources into those environments to assist in the process of regeneration.
In 2013, we planted 500 useful trees (including a number of edibles) at Pine Ridge reservation, using permaculture drylands watering techniques to help them to survive. We also fixed up buildings, irrigation systems and a number of other tasks. In 2014, we plan to complete a build of a specially designed greenhouse – one that will keep plants warm with passive heating techniques and is inexpensive, using mainly materials found on the reservation and sustainably harvested. We need thousands of dollars to accomplish all the things we want to accomplish but can get a lot done for even just $10. We are doing projects that will benefit seven generations hence. Your funds can go a long way toward improving life on the rez for generations. If you donate $25, we will dedicate a tree in your name and if we can, give you the GPS coordinates (our GPS doesn’t access in some places on the rez). We hope you will consider helping! Your money goes straight to the project and is used frugally and well.
