Permaculture for the People offers workshops that explore how to create ecologically regenerative and socially just lives, neighbourhoods, and cities. Our main learning site is our suburban backyard, a living example of suburban degrowth based on neighbourhood resilience, social justice, multi species flourishing, and backyard food production.

Workshops, events, and garden tours will be announced on this page, so check back regularly!

Please note, all Permaculture for the People events are pro-feminist, pro-LGBTQ+, anti-racist, and anti-colonialist.

Workshops for 2021

There are no remaining workshops for 2020

  • Urban Permaculture 101 – 2021
    • May 1 and 2 2021, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m (both days)
    • Sliding scale: $125- 200
    • In this two-day workshop participants will learn the basics of permaculture ethics, principles, and design. We will explore practices that work best in cities and will examine the importance of social justice within permaculture design.

A small handful of work trades are available! I calculate a “wage” of $20/hour for work traders and deduct this amount from the lowest sliding scale fee. Please email me for more details.
