As a Montessori Guide (teacher), I've noticed how similar and compatible permaculture is with Montessori schools. Maria Montessori mentions there should be a garden at each school where the children can plant flowers and things. I've read that there are a handful of Montessori Permaculture schools that exist, and it surprises me that there are not more. Does anyone have first-hand experience with permaculture montessori schools?

I was just looking into this myself!   We run an outdoor education program from our farm in MO and I am a PDC graduate.  I've been using Montessori materials with my own kids in our homeschool and taught for a little while in a private school that was Montessori based, but not a certified Montessori school.  It's interesting because now I'm at this point where it seems like all of these loves of mine are converging and becoming one.  I was thinking maybe I'd get a forest school certification and a Elementary I/II Montessori certification and make our outdoor education classes legitimate Montessori/ Forest School/ Permaculture classes.  I wish there were more examples.  I'm trying to formulate a concept of how it would all work.
