Calling all CRMPI Supporters!

Dear Friends, 

    We are reaching out to our community to ask for your support. We are compiling a collection of our supporters' letters of support to send to the Eagle County Planning Department to go along with our application for a Special Use Permit. We need a Special Use Permit to continue our 35 year history of offering classes on permaculture design in our onsite food forest.  If the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute has added value to your life, community or career through one of our design courses, summer classes, internships, interactive tours or articles, please send a letter of support to about your experience!

    We understand that the COVID-19 Pandemic has affected many of our communities. If you have anything to spare, we accept donations to CRMPI at
