Graham Calder has more than 13 years of experience teaching permaculture and ecological design. In 2009, he finishes his BA in Environmental and Ecology Studies at Concordia University (Montreal, QC). Dissatisfied with the traditional environmentalist approach and it’s inability to meet the challenges of our time, Graham turns to Permaculture. The same year, he obtains his Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) from Jesse Lemieux at Pacific Permaculture and then becomes the apprentice of one of the great names of Permaculture, Geoff Lawton, at the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia (PRI).
At the same time, he founds P3 Permaculture in Montreal: a social enterprise teaching and consulting permaculture design with the goal of making permaculture accessible to all.
To date, Graham has certified more than 350 students in Permaculture Design. He has offered consulting and design services in more than 9 countries around the world; from urban gardens in Montreal, to the desert lands of Gansu in China, the tropical rainforest of Costa Rica and Cameroon
Now more than ever, Graham is dedicated to creating new courses and projects to inspire and facilitate the transition to action and the development of regenerative solutions for our planet and society. Its projects include soil regeneration, accelerating social change and support for the implementation of regenerative projects.
