Welcome to Great Rivers and Lakes Permaculture Institute!

Connecting permaculture practitioners across the Great Lakes and Ohio River Vallley

    Great Rivers and Lakes Permaculture Institute is made up of people who are passionate about permaculture and the myriad ways it can contribute to our world and we look forward to working with you!

    We are nationally and internationally known leaders in permaculture design, education, and related fields. We are farmers, builders, and business people who live in large cities, rural environments, and everywhere in between. We feel ready to participate in a larger, exciting conversation with you about the direction of our region.

    Our organization is formed and driven by membership participation. We invite you to join a circle which interests you. Find out more on the Volunteer page.

    GRLPI serves as a regional hub for Permaculture Institute of North America.

Please note that some of our event dates have changed and at least one event will now be online.
