Welcome to the #freepermaculture project, where we believe that the knowledge we need to live sustainably on the Earth is free and available to anyone who sticks their hands in the soil, and our mission is to help you get your hands dirty as often as possible!
Whether you live in the city or the country, are a renter or an owner, our free online permaculture courses will help you envision and create ecological gardens and regenerative homesteads, and connect you with a global community of co-learners, innovating hands-on solutions and envisioning a sustainable future, together.
This resource is a brilliant opportunity to access knowledge on permaculture. Well-structured and delivered by people that are walking the talk. I am a bloke and was hesitant at first as I thought that the course was only for women, thankfully not so and I would recommend to anyone starting to study this fascinating subject. Only wish I had taken the opportunity sooner.
This course helped me to focus my view of Permaculture away from what everyone else does and into something unique and special to me, while giving me guidelines to structure my goals and ideas properly. Now I can actually show the “brown” (not eco-minded) people a plan on paper that they can relate to, as well and win them over to the “green” side.
This course is inspiring, informative and gives a no-nonsense approach to permaculture! It has a straightforward tone, great and varied content, the layout is beautiful, with lovely illustrations and great videos. Then there are a lot of tips for further reading. The permaculture approach gives me hopes for a brighter future for humanity because of its creative nature where we see solutions instead of problems.
The #freepermaculture project completely changed my life. I always thought permaculture was only for landowners, but these fun, accessible weekly classes are helping me turn my rented house into a paradise for my family, without spending a lot of money. I love this course! Thank you!

As a newcomer to permaculture, I LOVED this course!! It opened my eyes to the richness of life in ways I had never imagined. I walked away with a sense of greater balance within myself, and with the world outside of myself. I feel able to look at the world differently now, and create more sustainable systems in all aspects of my life.

Just started with the course and found such an amazing richness of study material! I love the way it’s explained, how accessible and well thought it is. Love the community and sensibility…I can’t stop thinking about permaculture! My study hunger is getting greater to make this dream project come true! Thanks!!
