Education and training is central to permaculture. It is likely the main reason why permaculture is now working in over 120 countries around the world.

Permaculture teachers are both active practitioners and trained teachers. There are successful projects weaving permaculture into school curriculums worldwide.

There are an increasing numbers of schools and colleges in the UK that are incorporating permaculture into their work. If you are involved in permaculture work in a school or college please tell us about your work.
