About Us

Guerilla House is a shared learning platform for the experimentation and pursuit of urban household regeneration. Whether it’s a large mansion, an informal dwelling, or even something transient like a hotel or backpackers, most people spend the majority of their time in a space they call “home”. We therefore believe the home space should be the centre of regeneration and abundance for every single individual.

Using permaculture as our framework, we offer an informal yet impactful training space where we explore practical sustainability skills, deepen our interconnection, and actively engage in regeneration as a collective.

The aim is to get us practically equipped as a community to be able to design and implement our way to collective (not just self)-sustainability, whatever our individual circumstances, becoming urban guerillas in the process and claiming our right to live the abundant lives we deserve.

OUR VISION

Our vision is a world where every single being has the opportunity and resources to express themselves fully, without fear, expectation or lack.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to make urban permaculture affordable and accessible.
Founders
Founders Joshua Potgieter and Imraan Samuels both come from challenging backgrounds where monetary resources were not always in high supply. Dropping out of high school (Imraan) and not going on to tertiary education (Josh), while at the same time becoming more and more aware of the ecological and social issues plaguing the world, they stumbled upon permaculture, a practical system which provided promising solutions for addressing social, economic, and ecological issues simultaneously.

Meeting at a permaculture design course in 2014 (hosted by SEED), they immediately became friends and knew they needed to share with the world the profound impact this course had had on them. In February 2015 they threw a garden party with friends, published some pictures on social media, and just like that Guerilla House was born.

I have just done the soap making workshop and cannot recommend it enough! What a stunning day I had, I learnt lots... the vibe was amazing and the learning an absolute pleasure and inspiration! Thank you!

I attended the low tech mushroom course recently & had an enjoyable 1/2 day learning about mycelium. The course gives you an introduction into mushroom growing without high sterile technical requirements. Imraan & Josh were informative, passionate & engaging and I went away armed with enthusiasm to give it a go myself.

Lorraine Copley

Excellent sharing of useful, empowering info while encouraging community. Well done and thank you, keep up the great work. We want to restore Earth to a healthy state for our children and we need these skills.
