April Perma Youth Americas Festival

Permaculture comes from Indigenous culture and wisdom.

During this festival, we received feedback from the youth and we had the honor to hear from Bryan Deans of OLCERI and John A Lago Gonzalez of Tierra Nueva, Puerto Rico. We started the April festival by acknowledging and paying honor to the lands we live on and the elder’s past, present, and future.

Here are several interesting resources that may provide information about the ancestors of your land.
