About this Network
Since January 2005, permaculture activists throughout the Northeast have been meeting and actively creating a network for mutually supporting each other. We are working both locally and globally to spread permaculture and its diverse solutions for a better world.
More specifically we are:
1. A network of permaculture practitioners, teachers, designers, and students
2. Informing the public of permaculture farms, projects, courses and events
3. Establishing plant and seed banks, libraries, networks and databases
4. Advancing permaculture and forest gardening through research, scientific trials, and case studies
5. Developing and organize
regional conferences and events
6. Integrating with the broader sustainability movement, marginalized groups, and a "mainstream" audience
Let's hear from you! Make this website your own by choosing the appropriate pages and clicking 'edit'. Or, put up a profile or start a discussion on the

What is Permaculture ?
Permaculture Is A Vision
"'Consciously designed landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fibre, and energy for provision of local needs.' People, their buildings and the ways they organise themselves are central to permaculture. Thus the vision of permanent (sustainable) agriculture has evolved to one of permanent (sustainable) culture." Communities, food systems, and living systems are integrated and mutually supporting as opposed to separated, exploitative, and destructive.
Permaculture Is A Design System
"(Permaculture is) the use of systems thinking and design principles that provide the organising framework for implementing the above vision. It draws together the diverse ideas, skills, and ways of living that need to be rediscovered and developed in order to empower us to move from being dependent consumers to becoming responsible and productive citizens."
Permaculture Is A Network
"...A worldwide network and movement of individuals and groups who are working in both rich and poor countries on all continents to demonstrate and spread permaculture design solutions."
Quotes from: David Holmgren,
