About Us

DPG is bringing permaculture to life across the Denver metro area.

In 2012, instructors and students of Denver’s Permaculture Design Course began organizing the Guild to be able to continue the life-changing experiences they were learning about.

They sought to create a community of practice and integrate permaculture principles into their daily lives and communities. DPG’s curricula have grown to encompass four yearly classes, workshops in greywater and rainfall harvesting, pruning/grafting, and other introductory and advanced topics.

There are nearly 500 people who have completed at least one of our  Permaculture Design Course, the Advanced Landscape Design Course, or the Social Permaculture for Regenerative Change course.

Our numbers speak for themselves

The DPG Board of Directors currently has three members who volunteer their time to set the strategic direction of the DPG, organize events, coordinate trainings and workshops, and recruit new members and instructors.

Our Board of Directors is elected by and from the membership and uses a consensus based decision making strategy. Their role is to develop strategies and relationships that serve the greater vision of the membership.
