    Wherever you are is the place to start learning and working with Permaculture. If you are on the road or living where you were born all that is offered here is applicable. If your trip is for a week or a year you will find things here that will assist you. Itinerant Permaculture is what happens from spontaneous meetings, from paths crossing by chance, from volunteering to assist on a farm or in a community. Permaculture is the toolbox you carry with you while traveling. It is the way you view and understand the road and the world. It is an aspect of all that you do, from digging a hole to building a community. It need not be explicit, and really should only be so if the situation encourages it. The point is that to create a sustainable human culture we need to infuse sustainability in all that we do moment to moment, whether on the road or at home. The following courses will assist you in creating your own bit of sustainability and help us all create a more sustainable world
