    “ACS has been teaching Permaculture online since 1995 and a member of the Permaculture Association for many of the years since then. Networking with the Permaculture Association is very important to us; not only in raising the profile of our work in permaculture, but also keeping us connected with and informed about the global permaculture industry. The innovative ideas and environmentally sympathetic progress that permaculture contributes to the global community is important to the future of all mankind. It is nothing but positive and inspiring to be connected to the world of permaculture though the Permaculture Association." - ACS Education, Oct 2020
