Chapter 14 of Permaculture, A Designer's Manual often gets short shrift or lost among all the focus on the technical perfecting of permaculture. At the We Are All Farmers Permaculture Institute we take the call to action for creating nodes of permanence and working to foster community very seriously. In short, though deep technical knowledge is necessary for permaculture technical practice, culture is not culture without people. The hard work of creating regenerative community is essential to providing a foundation for carrying permaculture practice forward. Moreover, how can people afford to continue permaculture practice? What level of responsibility do you have in your community? This presentation outlines lessons learned in the context of the American non-profit community and examines business models, structures, marketing, etc. essential for a non-profit, if non-profit supported permaculture is a model you wish to pursue.
