Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.

Project Summary

"Underdeveloped" An international education facility for design, ecology and traditional skills

Project Description


An international permaculture education centre that demonstrates sustainable living while valuing cultural diversity and supporting the indigenous community. The site will facilitate a cultural exchange between international students and local participants by offering courses in permaculture, natural building, bioremediation and restorative agriculture. The focus is on engaging indigenous youth and equipping them with survival and employment skills that recognize and value their cultural heritage while providing them with local economic opportunities.

Outcomes:

Reinforcing young indigenous people’s pride in their cultural heritage and to providing them with local economic opportunities. Teaching local and international students restorative design and sustainable living skills. Bringing local trade into focus and stimulating the local economy.



The population in the area is mostly indigenous Zapotec and Chuntal. Women still create traditional weaving and ceramics and natural building skills are still common. Many people in the region (especially young people) have left the area to work in bigger cities or in the United States. Young people are left with little opportunity or motivation to stay in the region.

The climate is Subtropical with a dry winter and wet summer. Average rainfall is 990mm/yr. 80% during the summer season. Area prone to hurricanes and bush fires. Earthquake zone D. Climate analog: Thailand, Senegal, Goa (India), Yemen, Madagascar, West coast of Peru, Namibia, North western Australia (Kimberley coast).
