Project Summary

Bahrija Oasis is a dry land's permaculture project demonstrating effective permaculture design for abundance including soil and water management strategies using local resources.

Project Description

Bahrija Oasis has been established as a pilot project and demonstration site on one of the harshest climate conditions you can come across. It is serving as a refuge for wildlife while producing a healthy number of crops as well as building on natural resources such as soil and cultivated woodland.

The Oasis is also home for the Permaculture Research Foundation of Malta and hosts a number of courses every year ranging from Introductory brief courses to Full design and also internship programs.

Being in the middle of the meditteranean, has both the pros and cons. We are cut off from the mainland making us secluded on an island, yet the geography & history of our islands have much to offer on many levels to anyone who visits.

Bahrija Oasis continues to demonstrate effective systems which can be adapted and installed everywhere.We also have a number of urban design systems which we are also working with while spreading the work around.

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.


PDC Teacher

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.
