Permaculture Pioneers

Permaculture Visions are the little pioneers of online permaculture training and mentorship. Serving continuously over 20 years, we have tutored participants from more than 65 countries.

Through Permaculture education we can all create a better world – cleaner water and air, fresher food, rich wild-life habitat, healthy hearts and empowered  communities. We started out with Bill Mollison’s official support in the 90’s and began quietly working online to offer personally mentored, affordable courses in Permaculture.

Leading by example

These days  April Sampson-kelly and Bill Mollisonyou will find lots of online courses in permaculture. Many of those courses are taught by our own graduates. We prefer to stay small so we can enjoy our work, keep it real, be able to listen and respond to changing needs and effective in mentoring and inspiring you.  There is a big difference between making money and making a living.  We enjoy living the permaculture way with days full of variety, intellectual challenges and social interaction.

Little but resilient

earth_repair_kitHow did we survive so long?..How did we grow such a broad reach?.. What has helped us build our teaching experience?  We simply listened and responded to our students needs.

We have built a huge course database that showcases excellent work by international projects and students worldwide.

Do you need someone to motivate you? Then it might be wise to do our hybrid training or go to a local face-to-face course or do a permaculture bootcamp instead.

Here is a testimonial from one of our customers: “Thank you for a wonderful experience at Permaculture Visions.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the tremendous amount of information you provide and the level of detail you offer in your modules. At first I wondered how a hands-on subject such as Permaculture would work in an online formatThe-Thinker---best-version2_small, but I quickly found that you provided so much information and guidance that I was able to successfully implement the concepts in my own living space and really make the most of my experience. Your feedback on my assignments was always helpful and your thought-provoking questions made me think things through where I needed to. All in all a great experience. Thanks again.
