Introduction to Permaculture with Kevin Bayuk

Happy New Year!

Graze the Roof is honored to host a 2-hr Introduction to Permaculture workshop with inspiring local teacher, Kevin Bayuk.

Kevin works at the intersection of ecology and economy where permaculture design meets cooperative organizations intent on meeting human needs while enhancing the conditions conducive to all life.  He is a partner with LIFT ( where he provides strategy and guidance for emergent next economy companies helping them access growth capital and sustainable growth plans.  He also frequently teaches classes, workshops, does public speaking, facilitates meetings, plans events and provides one on one mentoring as a founding partner of the Urban Permaculture Institute San Francisco ( He is as fluent with information technology as with perennial polyculture agroforestry. Writing, speaking, researching and mentoring are his strongest skills.  He's help raise millions of dollars of venture capital for companies he's co-founded and he raises ducks in his small urban garden in San Francisco.

This community workshop will be an infusion of theory and practice. It will be a great opportunity for individuals new to Permaculture and for those who want to rekindle their passion for Permaculture. 

"Many people think permaculture is gardening. Yet that's a lot like saying math is only about building bridges. Permaculture is about creating an INCREDIBLE LIFE for YOU through nature connection and smart intentional design. It's about abundance. It's about LEADERSHIP." - Regenerative Leadership Institute

We hope you'll join us on January 20th 2013 from 1p-3p. Share this opportunity with your friends, family, students, and neighbors. 


  1. It's nice to hear that there are people such as Kevin who share their knowledge about making green roofs. I hope more people will follow his example and spread the information about how to make green roofs. This way, a lot of people will be able to contribute to the environment and enjoy the benefits of having a green roof.

  2. I definitely agree with you, Tisa! It's such a relief hearing that there are people who care for the environment. And one effective strategy to make our environment greener is to plant on our roofs. It adds beauty to our property without requiring us to consume extra land space.

  4. I agree with you Kristopher that one effective strategy to make our environment greener is to plant on roofs! It’ll be cost-efficient and space efficient, and it adds clean O2 to the environment.

  5. I love these projects. I think it is something that should be almost mandatory in urban areas. I was talking to a calgary roof repair guy that I know and apparently it is getting pretty big up there.
