The Power of Permaculture

What Is Permaculture?

Permaculture can inspire the ways we design our landscapes, our businesses and our lives. Permaculture is a toolbox of solutions for repairing and enhancing systems. Caring for the earth, caring for people and returning the surplus are the core ethical principles that make up this toolbox and are the foundation for incorporating sustainability into personal and professional work.

The possibilities of creating better systems for food, energy, medicine and relationships are all realized within the community of a Permaculture Design Course (PDC). The community itself has much to offer: like-minded people from across the Puget Sound who are open to sharing resources, services and job opportunities. Learn the primary principles for functional design, living systems, energy systems and the attitude it takes to successfully apply them.

What Are Other PDC Students Saying?

Permaculture inspires enormous passion and enthusiasm in its students. Here’s what recent graduates of Seattle Tilth’s PDC say about it:

There is a misconception that permaculture principles and ethics apply only to agriculture. This simply is not the case. We can apply these practices on all levels of life. It is the best business class I have ever taken. – Gwen

 A year later I’m finding that I routinely apply the principles of permaculture design to almost everything I do – personally, socially, spiritually. Toby brought the subject matter alive in a way that was memorable and edifying. – Sinan

The focus in this course is global and important for making our world a better place. – Rebecca
