Establish permaculture demonstration sites in every community, evolving them into resilient eco villages.

Hi, I'm Susan Krings, the first volunteer with DiHG Eco-Prise, Inc. I founded DiHG because I want to collaborate with others, helping communities adapt and become resilient to climate change. Utilizing permaculture design, we are able to partner with nature, steward our local ecosystems, harvest renewable energy and secure sustainable food, water and housing. Please join me to develop your skills and share your talents. We are the solution to the really big problems facing life on our beautiful planet. Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to volunteering with you.

Ushering the planetary revolution in regenerative sustainable living -Where everyone has a beautiful, safe and equitable place to exist.
