We are a grassroots organization of people (villagers) that make up the #modernvillage.
Our mission is to:
Advocate for permaculture design and a Permaculture Lifestyle
Create opportunities for our members to implement sustainable food producing ecosystems
Build a hub of grass-roots networks made up of villagers who identify as: permies, educators, gardeners, agrarians, researchers, designers, artists, supporters, and mentors.
Our intention is to:
Demonstrate alternatives in food production
Build safe, healthy and vibrant community programs and supports
Encourage and develop system supporting technologies through permaculture design
Promote economic viability of natural resources by establishing healthy relationships with nature
And to strategically incorporate community engagement in community development in a holistic and inspired way.
In everything we are guided by our social, spiritual and ecological framework. By doing so, we ensure that we are offering a holistic and balanced approach fully accessible to our communities.
Our social framework is about our relationships with others and with our communities.
Our spiritual framework is about the relationship we have with ourselves.
Our ecological framework is our relationship with with nature & spaces.
The Modern Village builds community resilience through projects, workshops, education, connecting with the community, growing food, creating permaculture food gardens in both urban and rural setting, creating healing and wellness spaces, intensive leadership training and addressing root causes of issues that affect our communities.
We are rooted in our communities and our projects, activities, and workshops are aimed towards affecting sustainable changes in holistic and tangible ways that reflect the needs of our communities and amplify marginalized voices.
We are more than just an organization, we are a village of people creating change through permaculture, decolonization, and anti-oppressive frameworks. We do this through social, spiritual and ecological platforms. By doing so, we ensure that we are offering a holistic and balanced approach fully accessible to our communities.
