This e-book is an accompaniment to our Permaculture Primer video course which is a 6-hour introduction and prerequisite for our Permaculture Design Certification course.

Our Permaculture Foundations E-Book is going to teach you:

❏ How ecosystems work, where our role exists within them.

❏ How to design systems that rebuild, regenerate.

❏ Sustain ecologies, which then sustain us while creating space for all other beings, organisms, and life systems.

What’s Covered in the E-Book?

What Is Permaculture?

Understand this alternative perspective on agriculture: how it simplifies and solves the problems facing our planet.

The Problem is Always the Solution

Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to restate it from a different perspective. For example, ‘you don’t have a pest/bug problem, you have a fowl deficiency’.
