Event Description

November 6, 2014- June 27, 2015

Permaculture is a system of ecological design that’s grounded in three ethics: caring for the earth, caring for the people, and caring for the future, which is often framed as reinvesting or giving others a fair share. Although we see ecological relationships most clearly when we look at Vancouver’s beautiful forests and gardens, permaculture is about much more than gardening. It’s a design system that can be applied to your business, your home, and your life.

This permaculture design course covers the core curriculum of the traditional permaculture design certificate, but it’s focused on the needs and questions of parents, educators, and others who work with children. How do we design our ecosystems, our homes, our gardens and our communities to support a new generation? How do we grow a generation of children who will care for the earth and its people?

To find out more or send in a statement of interest in the course, contact and visit Permaculture For Parents.

Hi Karen,
I tweaked things to be family events on Saturdays - some ran, some didn't. I'm still open to experimentation, however! Feel free to send me an email ( :-).
