Project: Himalayan Permaculture Centre
Posted by Chris Evans over 11 years ago
In March 2012 HPC completed a year's strategic capacity building program that has seen 2 new solar-powered resource centres for demonstration, training and plant resources as well as build up of 11 farmers' groups in local villages. More famers have been provided with Trainers' Training and various other skills-development courses and thre's a whole cache of them on ther way to being barefoot consultants. In addition a whole lot of nurseries are now operating producing thousands of fruit and multi-purpose trees. Details of what's happened can bee seen on the website under "Reports" and there's piccies too.
The scale-up or roll-out phase of this project will start in October whereby resources generated during the first year (demonstration and training facilities, and farmer-trainers) will be used to out reach to more villages as a model, and enlarge the network of individuals, communities and organisations working towards similar goals.
HPC invites you to participate!

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.
A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.
One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.
People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.
People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.
People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.
People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.
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.
