Permaculture Miami for many who know the term almost sounds like an oxymoron. The idea of a large Metropolitan area being sustainable seems far fetched. Responding to that notion, we have planted a prominent mark of Permaculture right in the heart of Miami. We at Permaculture Miami are now expanding the awareness and outlook of our eco-future by educating and empowering people through courses and design services offered within the south Florida area. We believe there is more then enough food, water, land and resources to create a sustainably living ecological system right here! Right now! And we need your help! Join with us, create with us, plant with us, teach with us! Let's make a difference
