World First Online
We are the 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. Our Teaching Project is award winning and our students thrive and grow.
Leading by example online and offline
These days you 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
We have built a huge course database that showcases excellent work by international projects and students worldwide.
Free to serve the people who truly matter – You
We are not governed by funding bodies or by other school’s curriculum but we do follow the guidelines set by the Permaculture Australia Association. We are inspired by the vision of pioneers such as Bill Mollison, David Holmgren, Rosemary Morrow, Jude and Michel Fanton, Robyn Francis and many other great Permaculture innovators worldwide.
Permaculture Visions Cares For Others
We offer a free ethics course that gives you the first chapter of the 20 chapters of our traditional PDC plus lots of free information and we support a lot of permaculture organisations. We regularly generate free information, commentary, photos, illustrations, cartoons and designs to celebrate permaculture. Permaculture designs healthy living systems based on natural solutions. Our organic and productive Demonstration site has developed several happy innovations. We are a carbon-negative eco-business and uphold ISO and EMS standards. We live the talk. We are actively working in our mature permaculture site and community, Silk Farm. Our vision is a better future for everyone by living and working sustainably with nature.
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 format, 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. Blyth McManus Maryland, US”
