The mission of the Gary Permaculture Project is to teach permaculture as a sustainable means to grow food, create shelter, build community, and better the environment. While learning, students will contribute to the seasonal work activities required to maintain the 6.8 acre permaculture farm of Gary and Sue Evers. Gary and Sue are no longer able to manage this work on their own. In October of 2012, Gary was rear-ended while driving. The resulting injuries left him paralyzed and unable to speak. After an incredibly long journey living in hospitals and trauma care facilities, Gary and his wife Sue moved back into their remodeled home, nestled into the corner of their Westby area farm. 
As Gary requires full-time care from Sue and other nursing staff, Coulee Region Ecoscapes, the Driftless Folk School, and the Evers' family have joined forces to create the Gary Permaculture Project (GPP). During the spring and summer months of 2016, courses/events will be offered in collaboration with a member of our team as the instructor.
