“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete”

–   Bucky Fuller

Visionary Permaculture :
Ever imagine how your world could be redesigned? By making changes to your life and lifestyle could you experience more health and happiness, awareness and abundance? In the face of the current crisis, the mandate of modern humanity is to co-create a healthy and harmonic future culture in which humans and nature are living together as part of a symbiotic planetary ecology.


Permaculture is a post-paradigm that looks to the operating system and design principles guiding nature. Utilizing understandings from traditional cultures as well as modern science, permaculture is a design approach for creating regenerative, ecological homes, gardens, farms, parks, neighbourhoods and wild spaces. Applying nature to culture, permaculture also imagines a redesign of the ‘invisible structures’ in society like education, business, governance and economics.

Gather with a group of conscious learners to explore the CoSM land and ecological community while sharing in a unique and creative introduction to the permaculture metaprogram. See how permaculture has been applied to CoSM using design methods that can also apply to your home and community, landscape and lifestyle. This course is suited to those new to permaculture as well as advanced practicioners.

“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple”

– Bill Mollison (Originator of Permaculture)
