Midwest Permaculture

Leaving the planet in better condition than we found it.


This is the networking home of
Midwest Permaculture(.com).

New this year is a free 18-part YouTube video series we think you will enjoy. Click here to Watch the Trailer

This networking site was created to facilitate connections between our students, graduates and the public on the subject of permaculture.

In essence, this is really just a social network, like Facebook, for anyone interested in permaculture.

Feel free to browse. The public forums are open to everyone to view. To post to these you will need to create a simple identity page. Add your picture if you like. It's really easy and we do not use your information for marketing purposes.

Have Fun...Connect... and Learn...
