Welcome to the Bullock's Permaculture Portal!

The Portal serves as a resource for permaculture information as well as the online home for our extraordinary permaculture site on Orcas Island, the Bullock's Permaculture Homestead. For over 34 years we have applied our shared experience to create what experts refer to as the finest permaculture site in North America. Together we develop and implement practical solutions for sustainable living while offering hands-on permaculture courses, workshops, skill-building, and more.

"The Bullock brothers up on Orcas Island have always been great, you know, mixed system, marsh and hillside and there are many others, I'm sure. But for every Bullock brother, there are a hundred woo woos spinning around in circles."
      - Bill Mollison, Permaculture Founder

"What permaculturists are doing is the most important activity that any group is doing on the planet. We don't know what details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options, we need people experimenting in all kinds of ways and permaculturists are one of the critical gangs that are doing that."
      - David Suzuki, International Environmental Advocate
