Grow Do It!

Project Type

Commercial, Educational

Project Summary

Grow Do It! is all about delivering permaculture education to young people in the most awesome way possible. We are developing creative teaching resources for schools, colleges and permaculture institutes worldwide.

Project Description

Grow Do It! is the brainchild of Katrina Button and Charlie Mgee, who both completed courses at Permaculture College Australia in 2011.

With backgrounds in the arts, music and popular culture, Katrina and Charlie have formed Grow Do It! as a way to bring permaculture into the mainstream, with their main target being young people with interests in ethics and sustainability.

Pattern learning is key to permaculture education and Grow Do It! seeks to teach permaculture concepts to young people through song, visual aid, games, creative facilitation and short courses.

Grow Do It! is currently producing the Permaculture Ukulele Project, an entertaining and educational DVD/CD covering the 12 permaculture principles through song, which is being partly funded by We The Trees Permaculture Crowdfunding. Please follow the above link if you would like to find out more and support the 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.

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.
