We put permaculture into action.

Permaculture is revolutionizing the way we work and grow in Denver.  Join our community at the future’s edge.

As a community, we follow the Permaculture Ethics, a set of guidelines for determining our moral obligations to other people, our fellow species, and future generations.

Earth Care: understand, protect, and regenerate our ecosystems

People Care: take care of ourselves, our families, and our communities

Fair Share: set limits to consumption and redistribute surplus resources

What do I get as a member?

  • You’ll get member discounts on our own courses and workshops, as well as those of many of our affiliated partners
  • You’ll receive support for your permaculture projects from local permaculture experts
  • You’ll have the ability to vote on key DPG decisions such as board members, monthly themes and program priorities
  • Most importantly, you’ll become part of the network of permaculturalists on the Front Range dedicated to making our home a better place.

Do I need a PDC certificate to join?


Permaculture is something that everyone can take advantage of, regardless of what training they’ve received. While we encourage anybody interested to take a PDC, having a design certificate is by no means a requirement for becoming part of the guild community.


Do I have to live in Denver?


Although DPG’s programs and services are tailored to residents of the greater Denver area, membership is open to anybody that is interested in learning more about permaculture and supporting the permaculture movement. One caveat: in order to have voting privileges, you must live, own property, run a business, or work for a business in the greater Denver area (inside the 470 beltway).

How much is a membership?

The base rate for DPG membership is $6 per month, or $60 per year

However, we recognize that not all members of our community are able to afford this rate. That’s why we’ve set up the DPG FairShare program to ensure that all Denver residents have access to the same high-quality resources, information and training. Can’t afford the standard rate right now? Apply for a DPG FairShare membership here!
