The Whole Life Learning Center



One World Permaculture has about 1/2 an acre of farm space in South Austin. The organic food grown in these gardens is FREE to anyone who contributes to the space. The gardens are open for those of you who would like to learn hands on how to grow food, design poly culture gardens, nurture biodiversity, grow healthy soil using organic and biodynamic preparations, propagate plants, incorporate animals in a system, design and maintain a maturing food forests. The dream of this space is to give the greater Austin Community a space to experience the evolution of a permaculture design site and the abundance it creates. Want to get involved?

We are partnered with The Whole Life Learning Center and serve all people. Our site serves as a hands on permaculture education and experimentation center with extensive gardens, 10,000 gallon rainwater catchment, greenhouse, pond, perennial food garden, chickens, goats, a mini donkey, yurt, 30’ geodesic dome, and over 2000 square feet of indoor space, including a kitchen and three bathrooms, all of which are available to host classes and gatherings on weekends, evenings and holidays.

This website also contains information for the Austin Community College Permaculture Design Course. This course is offered every Fall and Spring semester and is led by Caroline Riley. The class meets every Monday and Wednesday night for 12 weeks and earns the student a 72 hour Permaculture Design Certificate upon completion.

One World Permaculture offers workshops through out the year as well as hands on learning opportunities at the Whole Life Learning Center. Please see the calendar below for events and details.
