Project Description

Corricelli Ecovillage is a project of intentional Community up on Appennini's hills in Prato that started in 2001 but first 4 residents moved in only in 2003. Due to slopy land and wild bush around, moving in took several years. Today in 2012 6 people share a wooden structure common area, 2 strawbale houses, building their first rock house, a woodend structure workshop area, 2 caravans, 14 tent areas, 6 different gardens, and a 10.000 m2 property that is still bushy but has been slowly turned in a massive food forest. Olive trees, apricots, apples, vines, pears, peaches are just few varieties of fruit trees that we established instehad of native bush. Choosing to live without electricity and not been able to drive to our property made us one of the wildest Permaculture Italian experiences. We host volounteers and run courses during the summer, especially Synergig gardening, Biodanza and recently Bates sight method meetings. Permaculture design as an instrument made us able to massively reduce our footprint, belieaving to improve even more in the next 5 years hoping to have more residets coming.

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.

People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

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.

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.
