We at Planet Schooling, are immensely grateful to announce that the Kickstarter campaign was a great success. The book – Planet Schooling will be available to pre-order once again in November. Watch this space for new updates.

We are super excited to present Planet Schooling – the book! Planet Schooling is about nature based learning for adults and children alike. Learn along side your child/ren, how to turn your backyard into a permaculture learning laboratory. The book was written for parents who homeschool, families who want to connect the home garden to extra curricular school work  and for community educatorsUnknown

Day to day routines in the home garden can become learning experiences, integrating mathematics, science, language arts and other subjects.


Planet schooling has over 250 pages with more than 120 permaculture real-life activities. With easy to follow step by step guides on how to re-design your space. The space could be your backyard, community garden or even your school. By re-designing your area, you can turn it into an effortless learning space where you can grow food and become more resilient.


Activities include classic permaculture design tasks adapted for children. Along with experiences in the garden, renewable energy experiments and one of my favourite topics, soil.


This book demystifies environmental education whilst empowering you to take action for a greener future. The activities can be easily adapted for K-12. You don’t have to be a teacher, you just need a sense of adventure.
