Our mission is to teach, consult, demonstrate, and help spread the word about Permaculture Design worldwide.  We accomplish this mission locally in Tennessee through Nashville Permaculture, and globally through PermacultureEducation.com.

Nashville Permaculture and Permaculture Education are not-for-profit ventures, created by some of the leading Permaculture teachers in Australia, North America, and Europe.

We offer the official 72-hour online Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course and the Introduction to Permaculture Course, complete with tutoring and support from professional Permaculture designers and teachers.

Our courses are eligible for university course credits and continuing education credits in related disciplines (architecture, landscape architecture, sustainable agriculture, etc.). Our courses are also approved for Veterans VA and active military educational reimbursement benefits.
