Support Our Work

Education is our greatest resource to nourish life. The PERMIE KIDs Community Supported Education (CSE) is a labor of love that nourishes not just natural resources but natural relationships. You have a unique opportunity to invest in, support and receive a share of the “harvest” from a collaborative network of regenerative, conscious-creating educators, writers, artists, musicians, artisans, creators and designers.

A tree can be only as strong as the forest that surrounds it.

– Peter Wohlleben

Become a member of our CSE, an alternative social and economic model of education creation, inspiration and distribution that nourishes our children, families, communities and Earth. Your action helps to spread not just information, but wisdom and tools for others to remember that which we all know but may have forgotten – the critical importance of Nature and Community-oriented learning and living.
