Regenerative Leadership Institute - Permaculture Design Courses
"Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple."
– Bill Mollison, Permaculture Founder


Hello Greetings!

Interested in sustainable living?  We're the nation's sustainable living school and we want to send you a completely free Introduction to Sustainable Living and Permaculture Design e-book, just for being a friend of E Magazine!  


Click here to download your free e-book about Sustainable Living and Permaculture today!

While many people think of permaculture as gardening, that's a lot like thinking of math as being about building bridges.  Permaculture is a sustainable design science rooted in observation of natural patterns. For example, the same branching pattern of a tree is present in every river, as well as in our own bodies — the pattern maximizes edge, increases diversity, and serves at least a dozen other functions. The very concepts of diversity increasing stability of natural living systems and edge increasing diversity are core permaculture teachings.

Click here to download your free e-book about Sustainable Living and Permaculture today!

The Regenerative Leadership Institute is committed to taking the wisdom of permaculture mainstream, and we're thrilled to be able to offer this e-book freely to the larger community.
