We Believe in Abundance!

Welcome to the World Permaculture Association (WPA), a global nexus for permaculture enthusiasts, experts, and activists.

Our mission is to foster a sustainable future through the principles of permaculture, connecting individuals across the globe in a shared quest for ecological harmony.

Our Vision: A Forest Garden in Every Heart!

At WPA, we envision a world where communities thrive in harmony with nature, utilizing permaculture principles to create sustainable, resilient, and regenerative ecosystems.

We believe in a future where environmental stewardship and sustainable living are not just concepts, but a way of life.

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate, inspire, and empower individuals and communities to adopt permaculture practices.

We aim to be a leading resource for permaculture knowledge, providing a platform for learning, sharing, and collaboration.

Our Journey

Founded by a group of passionate permaculture advocates, WPA has grown into a diverse community of practitioners, educators, and volunteers.

Our Manifesto, Our Pledge

We are The World Permaculture Association!

We unite as a collaborative network comprising permaculture and agroecological experts, driven by a shared commitment to reshaping the unsustainable triad of social, economic, and ecological systems perpetuated by corporate capitalism.

This system has led to the widespread degradation of vital resources—land, water, and air—by disrupting nature’s inherent design on a global scale.

Our mission is to educate and empower individuals and communities through training, knowledge dissemination, and collaborative funding.

We advocate for the implementation of permaculture and allied agroecological practices, grounded in the wisdom of Nature’s Design.

By doing so, we aim to restore agency to the people at large, revitalizing our shared home beyond its former glory.

Our vision encompasses the provision of nutrient-rich, chemical-free sustainable food supplies, promoting robust health and prosperity while preserving the delicate balance of our planet.

This commitment extends to fostering clean land, water, and air, as well as developing alternative energy and economic systems that benefit all life on earth.

We firmly believe that a global network of self-sufficient local regenerative enterprises, committed to equitable labor practices and fair exchange, is the key to a sustainable future.

This approach is our collective response to avert the collapse of our current way of life and the impending extinction of life on earth.

Join us as we strive for a world where interconnected, regenerative communities form the foundation of a sustainable, harmonious existence for all.
