Design for sustainable living

SEED International provides fantastic permaculture education in world–class permaculture settings. We have been offering programs locally and internationally for over 2 decades. Permaculture is an amazingly common–sense approach to living lightly. The SEED International team is passionate about contributing to a more sustainable future, and is dedicated to helping others in their journey towards living sustainable and abundant lifestyles. We love to teach permaculture and help design productive

permaculture systems such as city farms and community gardens; gardens in universities, schools and playgroups; backyard gardens; urban rooftops; small holdings and ecovillages. Our education programs are practical, fun and delicious. Students leave with inspiration, great design skills, confidence to implement projects, and of course, happy tummies. SEED International is a social enterprise based at the unique Crystal Waters Permaculture Village near Maleny QLD, Australia. Learn more.
