We help to educate individuals, families, and companies to become sustainable
Regenerative agriculture is the key to solving the world’s problems.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
The world is in the middle of a crisis
Our planet is currently in the middle of a sixth mass extinction event.
What makes this time different? Humans. We have destroyed the world ecology.
In case you missed it, here are some statistics if you’re not already scared.
70% of invertebrate species wiped out, 40% of insect species in decline.
Food Supply Collapse
80% of crops are used to feed animals for Western Diets…leading to a sick population (metabolic syndrome)
Top Soil & Habitat Loss
60 harvests left before we run out of top soil
How can we save the planet?
All the solutions currently exist to fix our problems. So what is sustainable?
As humans, we have the ability of implementing functional design. Design that saves energy in maintenance and output over it’s lifetime vs. the energy invested.
This is the definition of sustainable. This still does not answer how we can change the world for the better?
By working together.
Permaculture or regenerative agriculture is a positivist movement which seeks to work with nature, not against it.
That’s why we’ve built up a network to share information, cooperate, and change things for the positive.
Greenstitute is the education arm of EDEN (Environmental Development Education Network). We seek to train people as Permaculture Designers / Regenerative Agriculture, and then send you out on projects to learn by doing. Without action there is no change.
…the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Without permanent agriculture there is no possibility of a stable social order.
