Permaculture Projects & Collaborations

The OAEC Permaculture Design Program engages in projects that build community resilience at local and regional scales. We prioritize collaborating with communities that have been and will be hit first and worst from climate chaos, including urban and rural social and economic justice organizations partnering with impacted communities; educational institutions; sovereign tribal peoples; and those who steward critical ecosystems. We use a Resilient Community Design methodology to empower these communities to design their own solutions for ecological regeneration and personal and community dignity, justice, and well-being.

The projects described below range from foundation-funded collaborations, fee-for-service consultations, or local community service projects that our Permaculture Design Certification students help to design and implement. The PDC is always looking for community groups who would benefit from a donated permaculture site design. If your group has secured land and is prepared to implement a holistic ecological design, please contact Kendall-Dunnigan to see if we are good fit for collaboration.
