Start Building Resilience in Knoxville!

Friends of the Guild play an integral part in fulfilling the KPG mission.  Our Friends enjoy learning about permaculture, attending events, and volunteering.  Their contributions of time, energy, ideas, money, as well as their diverse talents make KPG possible.
A forest garden is a food and habitat producing landscape that acts like natural woodland, which integrates all the elements into a smoothly working system.  Forest gardens contain layers, and all layers are essential for a thriving ecosystem. 
As layers are to the forest garden, Friends of the Guild are to KPG.  KPG recognizes the importance of all levels of involvement from volunteering to monetary donations.  Monetary donations are accepted as a means to keep KPG rolling but are mainly used to fund the permablitzes in Knoxville's urban mixed income areas.  All donations are tax deductable.

  • These are the permaculture warriors who show true grit and commitment with their time donations.   They do things like continuously and dutifully show up to permablitzes, help secure partnerships with business sponsors, assist with fundraisers, organize volunteers, write grants, and use their diverse talents to support the KPG mission.
