Langbos Community Project

Project Type

Rural, Intentional Communities, Community, School Projects, Philanthropic aid, Demonstration, Educational

Project Summary

This project is a joint effort between Permaculture South Africa and the Dept. of Rural development and NGO's. Langbos is a former informal settlement which houses some 500 families, and has virtually nothing in terms of infrastructure.

Project Description

The Langbos community centre and pre school has been developed over the last several years. The school currently feeds near enough 60 children per day.

Our project hopes to extend the feeding scheme, as well as provide a sensible water haresting system. During the development of the food growing systems, we wish to offer training to the local residents on a no cost basis.

Unlike many informal type settlements in the wider South African landscape, the residents of Langbos have sufficient land to grow food on a house to house basis. We intend to develop the gardens at the back door of the school and community center as a demonstration model and continue to aid through training the wider community.

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.
