Kickstarting a Permaculture School for Barbados

To Sustainability and Beyond! Kickstarting a Permaculture school to teach people how to grow food, repair landscapes and build community.

Why an Education Centre for Permaculture?

Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints could be beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise of Permaculture: a design science for creating resilient and efficient systems inspired by nature.

The call is simple — to get our homes and gardens in order so they shelter and feed us. However, the design of efficient systems does not stop there… the knowledge, wisdom and skill of efficient design is being applied to the creation of abundant systems of business, livelihood, and community.

From garden to government, this movement is spreading. Its power lies in its simplicity in providing people with an education they have always wanted — not how to make a living, but how to make a life. The ideal of being self-sufficient has for too long been held for individuals to aspire to, now it is time to learn inter-dependency and thrive together within the larger systems that we are a part of.

So why a permaculture education centre? Because its the most powerful and hopeful element we can place within our local and international community.
