Grow Permaculture, LLC.
On projects we specialize in bio-regional design through broadscale community, social, ecological, agricultural and financial permaculture.
We work in urban areas, farmland, and in high poverty areas such as Belize, Costa Rica, Brooksville Florida, Pine Ridge reservation and Haiti to bring abundance through permaculture design and implementation.
We deliver the Urban Permaculture Design Course, an Intensive Two Week Permaculture Design Course and specialty permaculture courses including advanced Permaculture Training in many areas. Koreen Brennan has been teaching Permaculture now for 11 years and her students are very active upon completion of their training!

Created in 2005 by volunteers from the Art of Living Foundation to offer a unique, experience-based approach to sustainable agriculture.

The core curriculum consists of:

2. workshops in the latest techniques in organic agriculture and permaculture design
3. formal exposure to nutrition and wellness. In addition, interns participate in unique leadership training that develops core competencies in communication, conflict resolution, managing stress and team building.
