Permaculture teaches hands-on skills that cultivate reciprocity between people and nature.
“What permaculturists are doing is the most important activity that any group is doing on the planet. We don’t know what details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options, we need people experimenting in all kinds of ways, and permaculturists are one of the critical groups that are doing that.” —David Suzuki
