“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.”

Albert Einstein


The colour of Spring
The smell of fresh salad
The taste of Kale
The sound of a question
not quite formed
both irrelevant
and essential

Lost in the juicer
somewhere between the glass
and the chopping board


Growing Greener

I’m Carla Moss and I empower people to design and create a greener present and future for themselves.

I help people by

  • teaching green / eco designing techniques, particularly using permaculture frameworks and tools.
  • designing spaces for clients that are more environmentally friendly and productive
  • facilitating design forums for designers to share designs and receive feedback
  • tutoring on the Diploma for Applied Permaculture course (with the Permaculture Association, UK)

People have used these skills to 

  • feel happier about their relationship with the environment
  • improve their health and wellbeing
  • have strategies to design choices in closer alignment with caring for the planet

More about my Permaculture experience

Permaculture is described as a lot of things. Here’s one definition: an art of living sustainably.

I first encountered permaculture in 2010 and found it a good fit with my creative interest in the environment. Since then I’ve done the Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) a Diploma in Applied Permaculture and I’m now a tutor for Diploma apprentices with the Permaculture Association of Great Britain.

Permaculture can help us think through how we design something using frameworks and tools. The ethics and principles give a window to view a design from a more sustainable perspective.

I am a teacher on the Leeds PDC course and on the Board of Trustees for the Permaculture Association.
