Rocky Hill Permaculture Initiative was born during self-directed graduate work at Prescott College. Randy studied the connection between resilience and well-being in natural environments. After 8 or so years of small and slow solutions we are thriving and forming partnerships with schools, groups, local community members, and working with teens to teach sustainability awareness and methods through the healing arts (adventure education), permaculture, sustainability, education.

Maybe you heard of Permaculture...

But what is it?

Permaculture is “The conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of the landscape with people providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.”

~ Bill Mollison 1978

We are thinking careful about the way we use our resources - food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs.  We expect we will get much more out of life by using less. We are more productive for less effort, while reaping  benefits for our environment and ourselves, for now and for generations to come.​

The essence of permaculture is - designing ecologically sound ways of living - in our households, gardens, communities, businesses and beyond. It is created by cooperating with nature and caring for the earth and its people.


Permaculture is not exclusive - its principles and practice can be used by anyone, anywhere and In many applications.


Some examples are; 

  • City flats, yards and window boxes

  • Suburban and country houses/garden

  • Allotments and smallholdings

  • Community spaces

  • Farms and estates

  • Countryside and conservation areas

  • Commercial and industrial premises

  • Educational establishments

  • Waste ground

  • Business development


Maine Guide Company is striving for resourcefulness and self-reliance. The permaculture design method is not a dogma or a religion but an ecological design system that helps us find solutions to the many problems facing us both locally and globally.
