WHAT IS PERMACULTURE?
Permanent-Agriculture / Permanent-Culture
Permaculture is a design system that connects and organizes information and techniques in a way that mimics the patterns, function, and ecosystem model of nature (bio-mimicy).
Using Ethics and principals is it's ultimate guide, Permaculture is a system that benefits all living things while simultaneously providing all the needs of humanity in a harmonious and meaningful way. Permanent solutions for food, water, fiber, fuel, shelter, and culture.
Permaculture can be applied to anything from land use and agriculture, to creating a sustainable business model. The possibilities are endless!

Matthew Trumm is a Permaculture educator, designer, and consultant from Oroville California, in Butte County. Matthew started to study Permaculture in 2011, and immediately made it his life's mission to share the blessings of Permaculture to as many people as possible.
Matthew has now pioneered countless Permaculture based projects throughout the State, which all dwell in the ever expanding web of projects and businesses under the umbrella, Treetop Permaculture. Treetop specializes in Education, demonstration, and consultation of Permaculture design. Highlighted Projects include:
-Cornerstone Schools: K-8 permaculture design based school garden program learning lab and demonstration site model in Butte County Schools. The foundation model is located at Hearthstone Charter School in Oroville, Ca

-Homestead on High Street: Matthews home and urban permaculture education / demonstration center, permaculture plant nursery, and local food and product resource hub in downtown Oroville.
-The Camp Fire Restoration Project: In 2019 Matthew founded CFRP, a non profit that helps educate and provide resources to restore the areas that were devastated by the deadly Camp Fire in Butte County. CFRP created the 1st ecosystem restoration camp in the US. and the first mobile permaculture based disaster response camp model in the world. CFRP educates and demonstrates permaculture and other sustainable techniques to fire survivors and the surrounding communities. Matthew and CFRP has consulted and worked with major government agencies and is continuing to influence major local and state policy.
-The Treetop Eco Camp and Permaculture Research Institute for Fire Resilient Design: On Sept 8th, 2020 Matthew's 12 acre forest property and off grid cabin in Berry Creek were burned in The massive wind driven North Complex / Bear Fire. This land was in Matthews family for over 35 years and was a source of great healing for Matthew and so many others. This has been a great challenge, but now it's time to turn that great challenge into the most incredible of opportunities. It's now Treetops mission to create the ultimate education and demonstration site for fire resilient design and ecological restoration. The land will house the Treetop Permaculture Institute and Eco Restoration Camp including camping for large groups and epic amphitheater for music and events. We will be announcing the first series of events here SOON!!
Matthew’s work has inspired and influenced many projects throughout California and has helped get permaculture and ecosystem restoration design solutions adopted into public policy.
