Klamath Knot Permaculture

Permaculture is the design and creation of human habitat that mimics the complexity and resiliency of natural systems.  The Klamath Knot is a uniquely diverse bioregion encompassing Northwestern California and Southwestern Oregon, defined by the Klamath River, the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains, and the Coast of Northern California and Southern Oregon. One of the most biologically complex temperate bioregions on the planet, it includes the coastal fog belt, hot interior canyons, and the most diverse conifer forests on the planet.   Klamath Knot Permaculture is an affiliation of Permaculture  practitioners, based at Sandy Bar Ranch on the Klamath River, and the north coast of Northern California, working to create resilent homes and communities by restoring watersheds and developing alternative technologies that reduce our carbon footprint. We sponsor ongoing events in Permaculture topics, including Permacuture Design Certification, natural building, sustainable farming, site analysis and design, water systems, mycoremediation and more.
