"Matt Powers has focused his permaculture energy and enthusiasm on a critical audience, the children of the world, with the permaculture message that there are positive solutions to the world’s problems and we can all engage in a meaningful life with an abundant future. This crucial commendable work which has been developed exceptionally well should be whole-heartedly supported.” — GEOFF LAWTON, GEOFFLAWTONONLINE.COM

Get a thorough & professional introduction to Permaculture Design in only a few sittings reading The Permaculture Student 1 set. Following the directions and guides, you can start your own permaculture oasis - no matter your climate or growing situation. 

"Matt Powers’ work presents the essence of permaculture design in creative and engaging ways for young people. It is a valuable contribution towards a kinder, wiser and more ecologically balanced future for all our children. Bravo!”                                                             — MADDY HARLAND, EDITOR AND CO-FOUNDER OF PERMACULTURE MAGAZINE WWW.PERMCULTURE.CO.UK

Ever wished for a PDC on Paper?

The Permaculture Student 1 textbook and workbook set condenses the certification requirements of a standard Permaculture Design Certification course into a reference manual and guided design workbook that costs a fraction of an in-person or online permaculture design certification course.

"Matt Powers' book draws heavily upon Bill Mollison's Manual and as such, the curriculum is reliable and comprehensive... It takes students on a journey of earth repair which is a meaningful mission for the young generation who need this knowledge, these skills, and hope."                -Rosemary 'Rowe' Morrow, Earth User's Guide to Teaching Permaculture

Today it is being used by teachers in elementary schools, high schools, and homeschools as well as with students of all ages. It is a reference manual rather than a traditional textbook of units and assignments, so it is easier to use in designing. Colorful, scientifically accurate, and engaging illustrations are found throughout the pages.

"I am awed by the concept and delivery. Truly a book for the times." -Mike Oehler, The Earth Sheltered Solar Greenhouse Book

The Permaculture Student 1 Workbook is a guide with recipes, formulas & diagrams to help anyone analyze, understand, and plan their own home site. Whether you need to make a topographic map, create a series of climate analogs, arrange the zones, or plot the sunpath or sun angles, this workbook will safely guide you and help you to stay on track - this is where the knowledge you acquire in the textbook is applied.

These books have been reviewed, edited, & heartily approved of by over 500 scientists, permaculturists, educators, students of all ages, & parents. Some of these would include Geoff Lawton, Rosemary Morrow, Dr. Elaine Ingham, Neal Spackman, Grant Schultz, PRI Australia, Common Sense Homesteading, Permies.com, Danial Lawton, Permies.com, Mike Oehler, Diana Leafe Christian, Permaculture Magazine UK & North America, & more!

"Books such as this pave the road that leads us in the direction of a brighter, more conscious, and more promising future."                             - Christina Mavaro, teacher/reviewer, Permaculture Magazine NA
