Inflation, supply chain disruptions, food shortages…

How are YOU preparing for the future in the face of uncertainty?

Now more than ever it’s vital that we create systems of self-reliance with confidence and security…

However, this process does not happen overnight. Designing the right system requires:

  • a thorough understanding of basic permaculture principles
  • knowledge of how to apply them to your own situation/circumstances
  • a lot of hard work – which will be reduced over timeif the system is designed right.
