We Need To Act

Last Saturday, Bill Mollison, the man who founded the Permaculture movement, died. An outpouring of testimonies on the significance of his work by hundreds, if not thousands, of people followed. A memorial page for him on Facebook flooded with comments about how Bill changed people’s thinking (and through that their life) within a day after the page opened and more are posted every hour. There is a growing consciousness that these changes in thinking and working are way overdue. I think we’re witnessing an epic shift taking place and his death might very well be what will make us come together to make a major push towards a new paradigm for our planet.

Not For Profit

The activities we develop on our farm are fully aimed at education in and demonstration of Permaculture. We do this work without the desire to make a profit.

We will also build capital, but instead of financial capital we focus on building natural capital.
