The Permaculture Credit Union pools the financial resources of people who believe in the ethics of Permaculture – care of the earth, care of people, and reinvestment of surplus for the betterment of both. We apply those resources to earth-friendly and socially responsible loans and investments.

The history of financial institutions is one of focus on the bottom line which results in overexploitation of the earth’s resources. Now, an innovative new financial institution – Permaculture Credit Union – has been established to allow its members to share their excess with other members of like mind who would use it for sustainable projects and, at the same time, take care of the Earth.
