The World In A Garden is happy to present Passport to Permaculture, a summer camp where kids learn about food and ecology following the 3 ethics of permaculture: care of all people, care of the earth & fair share. Throughout this weeklong camp, kids receive stamps in their “Passport to Permaculture” as they complete activities on the topics of nutrition, urban agriculture, biodiversity, local food, multiculturalism, ethical business and more! The camp features guest speakers, a pizza-making field trip to Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company and a camper-run farm market.

What is permaculture? Permaculture is a regenerative ecological design system that works with nature (not against it) to restore the beneficial relationships found in healthy ecosystems, produce food and create resilient, conscious communities. Want to know more?

Sponsored by the Killam Grant Foundation
