About Matthew Purkis

Since my completion of the PDC in 2011, I have been furthering my research, education and experience in the fields on Permaculture and Natural Building. I started my business in 2012 Eco Synergy Designs working toward our greater vision of providing the information and tools necessary for people to make the shift toward a self reliant lifestyle.

I am deeply passionate about the design science of permaculture, as I feel it is the answer to many challenges we face as a global society. I feel that it is such a powerful tool moving forward. The more people who are exposed to the magnificence of designing sustainable ecosystems the better.

Currently working towards developing multiple permaculture and community upliftment programs through the Permaculture Festival and other workshops and events throughout the year. I am currently on the cusp on consultation and system implementation leg of the business, I will be launching that in the next months to come.
