Build the movement

Permaculture is the change we want to see in the world being designed, tested and shared for wider adoption.

By supporting us to reach more people, we have a better chance of generating new ideas to build a fairer future for its people, plants, animals and everything in between. 

Permaculture is important to me because I believe I offers many solutions to the global challenges we face and it has the potential to change people's lives for the better. It certainly did that for me in no small way and because of this I continue to share it with others through my writing and by teaching courses.

Becoming a part of the permaculture network back in 2000 connected me to so many inspiring people and guided me to those flagship land-based projects with which I still work today.
