Project Summary

Permaculture Eden is a demonstration site designed for the purpose of education by example.

Project Description

Permaculture Eden is home to Steve & Fiona Hanson who have developed a 5 hectare site for demonstration and education. The project offers access to the public of a sustainable possibility for the future demonstrating how we can both live well and build eco systems at the same time; this is in stark contrast to our present paradigm which enslaves whole societies for wages and debt and degrades all our eco systems.

The mission of Permaculture Eden is to perpetuate simple, economical and purposeful living. Permaculture Eden encourages and supports individual and collective efforts to live sustainably into the future. Guided by the principles of kindness, respect and compassion in relationships with natural and human communities, Permaculture Eden promotes active participation in the advancement of creative integration of the life of the mind, body and spirit, and deliberate choice in living responsibly and harmoniously 
in an increasingly complicated world. Permaculture Eden seeks to attain this mission through:

  • Development & conservation of Permaculture Eden as an inspirational example of conscientious and thoughtful living in harmony with nature.
  • Sharing the philosophy underlying the "good life" practices at Permaculture Eden to encourage a diverse audience to apply this philosophy in their own distinct environments and life circumstances.
  • Offering visiting fellowships and educational programs on Permaculture
    self-supporting and sustainable living at Permaculture Eden.
  • Serving as a resource and network for Permaculturist’s 
    self-supporters, gardeners, and students of simple and sustainable living.
  • Practicing right living and following simple living principles, in all pursuits, so that Permaculture Eden itself models what it seeks to promote.

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.
