WHAT WE DO

Abundant Earth Foundation was formed as a way for the global Permaculture Movement to unite and better support one another.  We fund projects around the world that are using permaculture, regenerative agriculture, and social entrepreneurial efforts to make a great impact at local and global levels. Our work is funded through grassroots philanthropy, and we invite everyone to join and pool resources to have even more impact. Contributions large and small add up to significant solutions. There is power in numbers, and together we can make a huge difference.
