Project Summary

Cabiokid is a permaculture development site in central Luzon, Philippines. The foundation turned a mono-cropped 5 ha riceland into a multi-diverse productive landscape in over less than 6 years. At present Cabiokid boasts of a multitude of resources, trains people at its premises since 2008 and has expanded to cover more than 13ha. Cabiokid is a showcase model for a wet/lowland humid tropics ecosystem

Project Description

Cabiokid is a bustling site, where you can find closed loop systems of all kinds. All buildings at Cabiokid have rainwater collectors, compost toilets and are build with renewable materials. Cabiokid is also a showcase for bamboo building and construction and moved recently into bamboo bike making. Cabiokid is also host to Solarkite, a project that promotes affordable solar and wind solutions to communities all over the Philippines.

The Cabiokid permaculture site is an open learning institute, complete with its researches, trials and successes. We learn from our mistakes and share these together with the positive experiences with visitors and trainees.  

The Cabiokid farm has evolved into a full fledged biodiverse site amidst the mono-culture rice lands of central Luzon. Birds have come back and we promote local wildlife appreciation in support with the designated government agencies.

Cabiokid's resource areas include farm land, swamp, forestland, ponds and waterways and orchards. Cabiokid has been able to restore the bio-diversity without losing profitabilty and economic potentials of the land.

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.

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.


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.



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.


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.
