We need to heal ourselves, our landscapes, our relationship with nature and our culture & communities. We need to learn how to reconnect with nature so we can mimic it in the design of our present and our future.

Working together, with nature, for a better future for us all.

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a celebration of life. It is a way for us to move forward, supporting ourselves while regenerating the landscape around us.

For ourselves, for future generations.

Permaculture has become, for many, synonymous with sustainable, organic home gardening, working with rather than against nature. Evolving from the original definition of PERMAnent agriCULTURE to PERMAnent CULTURE, permaculture is the harmonious integration of landscapes and people, through the conscious design of a lifestyle which is highly productive and leaves the earth richer than we found it.

By building resilient, regenerative and abundant human-supporting landscapes, permaculture achieves high yields for low energy inputs, while actually building fertility over successive seasons. We search for, design and create thriving ecosystems that celebrate nature’s abundance, providing solutions for every climate, landscape and culture imaginable.

In essence, a design process to meet human needs while enhancing ecosystem health.

Earth Care

We only have one planet. We need to work with nature to rebuild our natural resources, so we have enough for a sustainable and regenerative existence.

People Care

We believe in the care of the self, care of kin and care of the community. We have a choice to not only help our environment but to help each other. We cannot do it alone.

Fair Share

Nature is abundant. We look to celebrate that abundance while accepting and respecting its limitations. If we don’t, there will be nothing left for future growth and future generations.

“I really do appreciate the time and effort that Savour Soil puts into planning and implementing his courses. They are well structured with well-researched information and experience rich.

I would recommend the services and educational courses offered by Savour Soil. I have always come away highly energised and motivated from their workshops!”

– John Mitchell

Savour Soil’s knowledge has provided us with a 25-year plan of growing our own food, educating our children and enjoying our property.

They have been so approachable and eager to answer our questions and design our garden our way. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Savour Soil for anyone wanting to gain a deeper understanding of permaculture, or anyone seeking holistic advice on how best to feed their own family from their garden.”

– Megan and Jacob

“A huge thank you for your time and knowledge today, and for your patience answering our many questions. It was just so inspiring.

Greg and I both said afterwards that your fee was one of the best uses of our money – ever!”
