Why Permaculture

Permaculture is a holistic design approach that creates productive systems for human settlement in greater harmony with nature. From growing food regeneratively to bio-construction, Permaculture approaches can be applied to homes, communities, broadscale farming and ultimately, ecosystem restoration.

Permaculture presents a set of design principles derived using ‘whole-systems thinking’ that looks on systems in all their functions, rather than asking only one yield of them;


Artvark Centre
St. Ann, Jamaica

Artvark Centre is a nature-based retreat space in Colgate, St. Ann (approximately 20 minutes from Ocho Rios). The venue will provide a tangible space for practicing site analysis, reading landscape, making compost and more!
It is designed for co-living, learning, and exploration surrounded by mountain forest overlooking sea. The location has comfortable teaching spaces, a pool, modern rooms, and WiFi. 

Our host location is also beginning their Permaculture journey and will be using this course to deepen their own site analysis and planning.
