Approach

Permaculture - An Ethical & Design Framework

Permaculture-based systems use a variety of science, technology, innovation, indigenous wisdom and instinct to create whole systems that meet these ethics.  Started as a grass root agriculture-focused movement in 1970s by Bill Mollison, Permaculture [permanent agriculture] has evolved alongside numerous ecological strategies, expanding to an international movement, best practice and design framework that encompass not only ecological, but social and financial disciplines. Permaculture is now synonymous with Permanent Culture.

Designing Scalability & Regenerative Capital Flows

What if we look beyond financial capital as the primary currency of value? As Terra Curators, we activate flows of  ‘other assets’ through setting up beneficial connections among all forms of capital. Learn more about Regenerative Enterprise from Ethan Roland's work - Eight Forms of Capital.

Soil Regeneration - Foundation of healthy ecosystem

Through organic, innovative cultivation practices, we grow living soil that supports habitat for beneficial organisms, cleans and holds water, sequester carbon, establishing a strong foundation for reliable, nutrient-dense food systems.


A Movie Speaks More than a Thousand Pictures 

Our fellow 'permie' Emmett Brennan produced a remarkable film that speaks about the Permaculture framework. Support Terra Cura's mission and the voices that Inhabit represents. Enjoy!
