"PERMACULTURE is a design system for creating sustainable human environments."
Bill Mollison
KOOTENAY PERMACULTURE INSTITUTE
Gr‚goire Lamoureux has founded the Kootenay Permaculture Institute, a centre
for research and education in sustainable ways of living. The Institute offers
an apprenticeship program in which people come and learn about Permaculture,
by direct experience and by doing research on their own. One educational
project involves establishing an agroforestry system, or "forest garden", that
can produce an abundance of food in a very short period of time and in a small
amount of space, using a minimum of energy (by recycling local resources)
while integrating trees in the system. The Institute also keeps in touch with
an international network of people working with various approaches to
sustainable ways of living.
