Welcome to Sonoran Permaculture Guild
We teach integrated workshops and classes on sustainable landscape design, as well as on topics ranging from bee-keeping to water harvesting to growing food at home. We offer the Permaculture Design certification course each Spring in February and March, as well as in another city in the Fall. We also provide consultation and teachers to neighborhoods, schools, governments, non-profits, and individuals to help them complete their grant or other sustainable educational experience. We ally with other organizations that plan and create a sustainable future. NEST, Inc./ Sonoran Permaculture Guild has been working in the Southwest sustainable communities movement for over 20 years. Our office and ramada classroom is located one and a half miles north of downtown Tucson, AZ.

What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a contraction of the words permanent and agriculture and permanent and culture. Permaculture is a way to live sustainably in a region for many generations, taking care of people and taking care of the environment at the same time. Permaculture uses ecology as the basis for designing sustainability into food production, housing, appropriate technology, and community development. It is now a worldwide movement for sustainability with many thousands of projects completed in over 120 countries. As Permaculture designers we study the patterns found in nature and the lessons found in natural ecosystems. We mimick these patterns in designing sustainable home sites, farms, and neighborhoods, as well as less tangible structures like community economics and food distribution systems. Join us on this sustainable journey.
