What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We exist in an age of rapid growth; growth of technology, of populations, of knowledge, of products, of companies, and of ambitions. In many cases this growth allows us to function more efficiently, faster, or more comfortably. But this growth and our increasing reliance on technology has many hidden consequences of great concern to a healthy future on our planet.

While we are now connected with millions of people all over the world at the push of a button, we are more disconnected than ever with the landscapes and ecosystems that surround us, and even with our own basic needs. We walk on concrete ground, we drink water out of sinks or bottles from which we know not of the source, we eat food from packaging, and we discard our waste in bins and sewers and out of our consciousness.

Many of us know nothing of the seasonal flora and fauna that surrounds us. We don't know where our food is from, how it's grown, and what it's nutritional value is. We must slow down and look around us.

Permaculture Design Certification Courses

The CRMPI Permaculture
Design Certification Course provides participants with an understanding
of the essential principles and elements of permaculture, enabling them
to better design and engineer sustainable systems including forest
gardens, appropriate buildings, greenhouses, and more. During the first
week we'll cover the essential elements of permaculture, followed in
the second week by a full-spectrum design project. The curriculum
includes a variety of classes and workshops essential to every
permaculturist's development: from soil structure to the invisible
structures of our economy and society.
