TreeYo Permaculture is a guild of designers and earth stewards focused on planetary and social system regeneration. Our guild, like the permaculture concept, encourages symbiosis through diversity as we cross cultural barriers and highlight each one of our talents.  From art to farm landscape design, from music to eco-forestry, our guild thrives through educating others in multitude of ways and implementing resilient landscapes and communities. We love to build with mud between our toes, grow food with sweat dripping from our brow, and be inspired by the patterns and abundance of nature.  


TreeYo’s Focus: Ecological Design and sustainability education

TreeYo Permaculture forms teams for these varying objectives, from project implementation to organic farm management, and is led by Doug Crouch, internationally recognized permaculture teacher and ecologist. Our collaborative work is guided by the ethics of Permaculture while our design focus stems from the regenerative principles of Permaculture. We not only focus on land-based design but also the people care aspect thus unifying the community of nature and humanity alike with sound economic consequences.


Our focus within Permaculture facilitation is the PDC which we passionately craft for a holistic experience.  Through this holistic perspective, our PDC’s reflect the honoring of diversity of Permaculture.  Consequently, to learn more about this style, please check out the linking pages and the videos under our TreeYo PDC page to understand the full realm of what our PDC’s have to offer.  Also, to keep current on our latest happenings, please read our blog and tune into our open source TreeYo EDU project. And for a bit of ambiance of our courses, view the following video below:

  1. Build your garden, grow your compassion, and share your bounty with all of the people that you love.
    If you are like me, you’ve probably heard this term,
    Permaculture, thrown around for a while now, but do you really know what it is.
    Permaculture is planting natural foods in land that is maintained without chemicals and machines,
    animals grazing that land naturally and cycling natural resources
    back into earth to create sustainable environments.

    • Beautiful!
      That’s my way of thinking and living for allmost three years now.

  2. This is rapidly becoming my favorite Permaculture site. I appreciate your approach, the way you describe/explain. I would like to learn from you and collaborate some day. I have just begun my new life – with new eyes…..(SEEing solutions everywhere…..) an open heart, and HOPE. Thank YOU Permaculture :)

    Thank you Doug/ TreeYo for providing such wonderful and rich information. Your site covers so much. I aspire to be like ya’ll.

    Peace and Permaculture ~ Torrie
