Everyone On Earth Should Know How To Live Here REGENERATIVELY!!

DIVE DEEP & SEE WHAT YOU’VE BEEN MISSING!!

This is the first middle school, high school, and college curriculum ever created for permaculture, and it’s the first peer-reviewed permaculture series EVER! The Permaculture Student 2 (PS2) is also the first global permaculture textbook to be cited since Bill Mollison’s in 1989 - the 2nd workbook and textbook really demonstrate the amazing amount of growth achieved in soil science, keyline design, mycology, renewable energy, natural farming, microbiology, social permaculture, land restoration, ocean and riparian restoration, and so much more. If you’ve taken a PDC, the volume 1 set will be familiar territory in an easy-to-read format, but the second set will take you on an advanced deep dive unique in published works because it involves so many sources, reviews, and editors.

Matt Powers has been taught 1:1 by Dr. Elaine Ingham, Peter McCoy, Darren Doherty, Rowe Morrow, Danial Lawton, and dozens of other experts from around the world in the process of creating these books. Matt has a master degree in Education in Best Practices, a teaching credential in history and english for California, and a BA in British and American Literature from New York University. d

“The Permaculture Student series is a landmark in the evolution of human-ecological relationships, and this latest installment raises the bar even higher than the last. Visually compelling, intellectually enriching, and endlessly motivating, this book will enhance the resilience of people of all age groups and backgrounds for decades to come. Whether you are new to permaculture or well-steeped in its principles, The Permaculture Student 2 condenses a wealth of information into an easily digestible and thoroughly engaging format that is sure to give any reader new points of reference and insight.

I highly recommend it.”

— Peter McCoy, Radical Mycology

“This book will help people who struggle with how to connect the different aspects of ecosystems into a logical whole. The framework presented in this book helps to line-up those facts and hang them side-by-side where they belong on the framework so that you can build, “fix", and be a part of ecosystems that function correctly, with little need for human intervention.”

— Dr. Elaine Ingham, Phd. SoilFoodWeb Inc.

“Matt did such an excellent job in putting that material together. That's a real accomplishment. It's great to see a continued refinement in the presentation of permaculture learning materials. It needs doing and it deserves to be done well. You've performed an invaluable service for us.”

— Rhamis Kent, Permaculture Research Institute

“I have taken time to look at each page - I am so impressed with your book, the diagrams to explain complex subjects are so simple and colorful - your hands-on explanations and project suggestions make the book so useful- the review of chapters by experts is a wonderful way of making sure the info is correct and also clearly explained - exposes experts to a wider audience. This is such a valuable resource for continual learning… This book could be a textbook for the Santa Barbara City College Permaculture Course.”

— Wesley Roe, Santa Barbara Permaculture Network

“With ‘The Permaculture Student 2' Matt Powers has completed a great service to the younger minds of the planet — others too, especially those new to land management, will find this piece very instructive, useful, easy to read and navigate. This expansive text successfully pulls together the broad scope of topics that the Permaculture methodology attaches itself to. Matt has done a great job of distilling often quite complex information and knowledge — for users of this text, this approach will provide a excellent 'springboard' as readers seek to dive deeper.

Matt has drawn on an impressive list of peers and editors for the compilation of this book. In a space where so many are fearful of feedback and defensive when they receive it, Matt has done the opposite and reached out to all manner of folks, making in some cases quite substantial changes and additions as a result.

Above all else, Matt has brought his strong abilities as a fun communicator to the fore, this whilst being not at all frivolous, and keeping an integrity to the important information that all minds need to take on as we navigate a more regenerative future as a species”
