Welcome to the Sonoran Permaculture Guild
Our vision is to make this beautiful Southwest Drylands region we inhabit more sustainable through Permaculture education, design, and implementation (and have fun doing it!). We are an IRS 501(c)(3) non profit organization, and over the past twenty years we have become well established in the Southwest sustainable communities movement. We offer classes, courses, and workshops on Permaculture design and many related skills; and we ally with other organizations that plan and create a sustainable future. Our office and classroom is located one and a half miles north of downtown Tucson, AZ.

We have ready to go workshops, classes, and courses to meet your needs in any of our subject areas. We act as subcontracters to non-profits, schools, neighborhood groups, individuals, and organizations. We can help you complete your group project or educational experience.

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.
