About Us

Permaculture provides a roadmap for designing the human environment for resilience and abundance, and the Permaculture design system has a strong focus on developing regenerative water systems. The Permaculture Water Summit has invited a number of experienced speakers to share tangible solutions to various water crises we face around the world. Many solutions are simple, cheap, effective, and proven, and many problems could be solved if people just had the information. The goal of the conference is information dissemination. We want to get high quality proven solutions to various water problems out into the hands of whomever they will be useful to.
