We are permapeople

We're a small international team of creative folks inspired by ecology, permaculture, food security, regenerative action and sustainability. We work out of our gardens in Germany, Canada and Singapore.

Our mission

To empower people to grow food to feed themselves, their families, and local communities while regenerating the environment.

Our vision

We aim to empower the *backyard farmer,* reindigenize abused green spaces, and move towards a local-food-production revolution. We provide the platform and tools for people to participate in a system of knowledge sharing, trade, and hyper-localized distribution, all geared towards production of regeneratively produced goods. Through a crowd-sourced database of plants, an open marketplace, a garden journal, and garden design tools - any gardener or small-scale producer can participate in this sustainable, circular economy. Everyone's input maximizes the value for every other participant in this ecosystem. Research, grow, harvest, trade surplus, share knowledge, repeat. Food is power.

Our values

Earth care
We respect the earth and work to regenerate it.

People care
We respect all humans and work towards equality for all.

Fair share
We acknowledge that everything is connected, and work to give just as much as we take.
