“What permaculturists are doing is the most important activity that any group is doing on the planet”
– David Suzuki

For the last 4 years Pacific Permaculture has been at the forefront of Canada’s ecological agriculture movement. We have had the privilege of instructing over 540 students in all aspects of permaculture design, over 250 of which have been full PDC graduates.

Our teaching has taken us around the world delivering courses in Palestine, Australia and Uganda. However, we’ve always considered Western Canada home.

That’s why Pacific Permaculture is hosting our first ever Alumni Convergence, April 14th in Vancouver BC. This will be a multiple format event including: 30 min. keynote presentations of work from four of our most prominent students; two open space opportunities to talk permaculture and share ideas; and “conference style” posters highlighting permaculture work from the backyard to the broad acre.


Come be inspired by stories from the frontline of the food revolution.

    Hi Grant! We’re familiar with this, but we aren’t doing it yet. Since this will be our first season of growing food to sell, we want to make sure we can make it through a whole season with enough produce for farmer markets before we make that kind of commitment. We’d love to be able to incorporate the CSA model into our project in the future though. Thanks for the link! PS – checked out your blog. Had no idea you were a wood carver. Love it!
