International Teacher Training Course with Warren Brush & PRI-Kenya Jan 2014!

Project: Permaculture Research Institute-Kenya

Posted by Sheena Shah about 11 years ago

We are very proud to announce our very first International Permaculture Teacher Training with internationally renowned permaculture teacher Warren Brush from 13-17th of January 2014.

PRI-Kenya are proud to announce our very first international Permaculture Teacher Training (TOT) from January 13-17th 2014 held with renowned permaculture teacher, designer, consultant, community builder, storyteller and mentor, Warren Brush from Quail Springs, California. The TOT will be held at the beautiful Acacia Camp at the Swara Plains conservancy in Athi River, about 45 minutes south of Nairobi.

In order to register for the course participants must have taken a Permaculture Design Course. The focus of the course is on teaching skills for permaculture, topics will include, but are not limited to:

- teaching permaculture using a combination of creative presentation methods

- practicum and group work

- using storytelling

- awareness exercises

- feedback integration

- facilitation as a holistic learning journey

- integrating course learning with site, group dynamics and natural learning


- creating a PDC curriculum

The course is an intensive learning journey and aims to build participants skills as teachers, mentors and community builders. The unique setting of the Swara Plains wildlife conservancy provides an extraordinary opportunity for participants to experience the stunning wildlife of Kenya, including the world’s only white cheetah, as well as the private permaculture farm hosted within the conservancy where sustainable living through permaculture is carefully balanced with wildlife conservation.

The cost for the course is 43000 Kshs for African nationals and 1000 USD for international participants. This covers food, accommodation and tuition for the five
days. Please note that your travel costs are not covered.

There is also the opportunity to join PRI-Kenya on a tour after the TOT to PRI-Kenya partner demonstration sites and projects. The tour will span six days and will include;

- Amrita Children’s Home- an orphanage set up by Amma

- Nyumbani Village- a home for 1000 HIV/AIDS orphans near Kitui,

- Drylands Natural Resource Centre, a PRI-Kenya partner working with over

300 farmers in Makueni

- Laikipia Permaculture Centre and Nabulu Women’s group- one of PRIKenya’s key demonstration sites in progress located in a Maasai community. You will also be able to visit our community partners the Nabulu Women’s group who grow aloe vera for soap production and the Laraigwan School where PRI-Kenya are initiating a food forest project.

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.



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.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

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.

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.

The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to be involved in permaculture aid work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture aid worker experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.
