Inland Northwest Permaculture Guild

The Inland Northwest Permaculture Guild is a network of permaculture practitioners who inhabit a region of the northwestern U.S. between the Cascade Mountain Range and the Rocky Mountain Range. We host annual gatherings and operate this interactive website to facilitate communication among Guild members and between the Guild and the greater community to inform ourselves and others about the promise of permaculture.

"Regeneration Begins With You"

Hello dear friends, 

We hope that wherever you are there are birds singing and patches of earth warming in the sun. 

Is it really Spring?  Seems like it might be!  Here are just a few updates from us folks on the INPG board of directors and advisors.  


Seed Swaps!

Hopefully by now you've had a chance to think about what seeds you'll be sowing this year, whether literally or figuratively.  Seed swaps are a great way to connect and share with your neighbors far and wide and come away with some interesting varieties of seeds!  


We have held several seed swaps throughout the inland northwest, from Colville Washington to Hot Springs Montana, repeating and creating annual traditions.


So many seeds were shared and new friends were made.  Look out for more seed swaps coming up, including...
