The Permaculture Academy
“Just make sure your hand print is bigger than your footprint.” Larry Santoyo
The Permaculture Academy is a school that forwards your understanding of the field of scientific sustainability. We teach methods that promote thoughtful decision-making and creative problem-solving, but we also reject “one size fits all” solutions. We honor methods that are basal, that come from the bottom up, rather than the top down, and offer monthly classes to beginners and the experienced from all walks of life, perspectives, backgrounds and creeds.
The term “Permaculture,” coined by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, is a contraction of the words “Permanent” and “Culture.” The vision of Permaculture is a human culture that dynamically sustains a permanently abundant global landscape. Permaculture achieves this vision through its foundation of caring for the Earth, guarding human rights, and investing all surplus resources toward these aims. Standing by these ethics, Permaculture’s design principles utilize observations of every element in a natural system to properly determine the human role in the design of a landscape. This approach of observation, analysis and participation makes Permaculture a unique holistic design system. The adaptability of Permaculture Design facilitates its continued growth as a worldwide movement, mostly through Design Courses, which have been taught in over thirty countries during the last forty years. The Permaculture Academy advances the vision of Permaculture Design in the Southern California area, led by Larry Santoyo and a team of recognized leaders of the global sustainability movement.
