About the Monthly Permaculture Class

Permaculture allows the true abundance of our Earth to flourish and nourish future generations with guidance from past generations!

The foundation of permaculture is the three ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair share.

Within that there are 12 guiding principles. The principles tether us whether we are learning about how to grow food for our family, bring art into our lives, or learning to lead a more regenerative life. 

We will be using these principles as the pattern of our project based classes every month. Each class will be engaging and will be accompanied by suggestions to bring what we are learning into practical action for your family. They will culminate into a celebration at the end of the month with our International Permayouth Gathering.

  “In some Native languages the term for plants translates to “those who take care of us.” ~ Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass 

“The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone”

This course will be taught by Allan Campbell, Annette Argabright, and Chanel Smith

Allan Campbell, the Education Director at Food Forest Abundance, along with Annette Argabright, Chanel Smith specialize in teaching permaculture and growing food forests. They met along their permaculture education journey, during their Children in Permaculture Practitioners course. Because they shared similar passions, they began Permayouth Americas and then created Family Permaculture. As permaculture educators and facilitators, their shared mission is to empower families and communities to be resilient and thrive by living in harmony with nature.
