Permaculture thinking is a highly effective way of designing homes, gardens, farms and community. But what happens when we apply the principles and ethics to both commercial, business and not-for-profit enterprises? Can we create resilient, creative organizations that both care for people and Earth, or are permaculture and business mutually exclusive?

We are a group of experienced Permaculture designers (Andrew Millison, Jeremiah Kidd, Koreen Brennan, Loren Luyendyk, Mario Yanez, Neil Bertrando and Rico Zook.) who have come together to form a collaborative design firm, in order to take on larger and more comprehensive projects than any of us can do on our own. We will discuss our rationale by set the historical context, acknowledging the current state of PC, discuss the need, as each of us perceives it, and show evidence for this need across many sectors.
