Spring Guild Walk, 2021

No Comments

We love Spring and all the smells, colors and aliveness it brings.

In an effort to share this with all of you I will do a series of live video session as well as post some of my observations here for you to enjoy and ponder.

Despite the whole COVID event that is playing out, nature is abundant, resilient and relentless in her determination to move forward.

Rain Event 2021

Here is a brief documentation of how a Permaculture designed system responded to a major flood event in Whatcom County. We got 10″ of rain in 48 hours starting on November 13. This is a quick look at how permaculture designed system at Inspiration Farm responded to this event.

Stay tuned to this site to learn more about Permaculture and how it can help you design a more resilient and abundant landscape in uncertain times.

News Flash!

We are planning a Hands On, In Person, Permaculture Design Certificate Course! Summer of 2022

Stay tuned for all the details.

Turning Problems into Solutions?

No Comments

Here is Geoff talking about it “Engaging in permaculture design feels natural to everyone because it’s based on nature itself.”

We will be teaching the system of Permaculture design here in the Pacific Northwest this Spring. As the global systems become more unstable, We invite you to join us on this amazing resilient journey!

Permaculture (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permacu…) integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies – imitating the no waste, closed loop systems seen in diverse natural systems. Permaculture applies holistic solutions that are applicable in rural and urban contexts and at any scale. It is a multidisciplinary toolbox including agriculture, water harvesting and hydrology, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal systems, aquaculture, appropriate technology, economics and community development.

Why get a Permaculture Certificate?

No Comments

People sometimes ask us “why do I need to get a PDC? I can just learn it from books and Youtube”. Some of the many reasons why you may want to get your PDC are:

  • You want the complete picture of permaculture
  • To get the full Permaculture experience with like minded people.
  • You want the hands on experiences and design practices
  • You like the accreditation and validation a certificate gives
  • You like the cohesiveness that a PDC immersion class offers

The reasons you need to get a PDC is to be legitimate using the word Permaculture in your professional practice.

  • If you want to teach classes on permaculture
  • If you want to run a business using Permaculture as a guiding force
  • If you aspire to teach a full PDC at some point
  • If you want to be a Permaculture consultant or designer for others

We LOVE the thought that some of our students will go on to become teachers. Whether it is short workshops or presentations or involved in full permaculture design courses.

Geoff Lawton answers some of theses questions.
