What does permaculture look like in real life?

Nestled in southeast Calgary is one of the city’s original thriving permaculture projects – our home!

As engineers and long-time permaculture designers and teachers, we’ve traveled the world to learn about sustainable and regenerative human habitat and have implemented many of these concepts on our property. We’ve been transforming our inner-city home into a permaculture demonstration site since 2009, and are proud to show you what we’ve done! (If you’d like to come see our property in-person, check out our currently scheduled Open Yard events here.)
