We at Paradise Permaculture Institute (PPI) are a diverse group of professionals, amateurs, and volunteers working to bring a wealth of edible plant species, growing and propagating techniques, and season extension methods to gardeners, nurseries, our supporters, and our communities.  We do this by providing experiences, education, and demonstration sites to support SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION. This is our passion and maybe it’s yours too–or can be! Please feel free to call Mona at 406-222-9999 with any questions or submit this form:
