No matter the reason, we know that now is the time for change. Socially, economically, ecologically, and personally, we cannot keep going the way we are going—our culture’s current path is simply unsustainable. We need a new frame, a new vision, and new ways of life. We need to build a culture, a society, a world that nourishes and enlivens us, and we need to heal and regenerate our world, our communities, and ourselves. We can only do this together, for ourselves and for each other.
Permaculture offers a compelling vision of healthy human societies that mimic and integrate with natural ecosystems. It also provides practical tools, techniques, and approaches to make that vision a reality, step by step, no matter where you live—from ecological gardening, to natural building, to alternative economics, new social forms, and innovative and integrative thinking, we can use the principles of ecology to design human and humane cultures. People around the world are using permaculture systems and approaches to build regenerative lives right now.

On Saturday, March 29th, thirty permaculture designers and educators from around the world will converge in Nashville to run nine short workshops introducing a range of topics in ecological culture design. All thirty are participants in an intensive Permaculture Teacher Training led by Dave Jacke, one of the world’s foremost permaculture designers and educators, and primary author of the classic permaculture text, Edible Forest Gardens. These workshops represent the teacher trainee’s “final exams,” and you get the benefit of learning from their tests!
Whether your passions reside in the city, the suburbs, or the country, there will be something for everyone at “Growing Community Resilience.” By bringing our greater Nashville community together, we can continue to grow resilient together. We look forward to seeing you there!
