Project Summary

A permaculture inspired food forest integrated with the local community.

Project Description

Maemutgarden is a new project started last year on a property of ten acres, formerly used for growing rice and corn on terraced sloping land in a small valley in Northern Thailand.

We have started doing all the usual things, food forest, rice growing, rearing animals, natural building and fermenting our own fertilizers and pest controls.

What makes us different is that we are very well integrated with the village community as I am the only non Thai living there and all the labour used in all our projects comes from the village or the surrounding mountain areas which are predominantly Karen.

Soon we plan to start weekend english classes for the village children, and hopefully a computer class if the right person to teach it can be found.

I have posted some photos at www.maemutgarden.com, a blog I started recently for my friends abroad.


we could do with some help

opportunities for volunteers.

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.
