Project Summary

This is my own garden project. As i have done my PDC in Greece, a climate that is very different from the cool, wet climate in Hamburg, i'm eager to gain practical experiences here.

Project Description

As i have started in summer this year, there is mainly preparation work to be done in 2012. I am currently trying to get the compost under control (e.g. managing additions of green and brown materials at the right times, in the right amounts) and building raised beds. Also i have been trying to work withing the constrictions of the requirements for bed location as the landlord (and neighbour) likes to have a grassy lawn. I am trying to get enough material together to fill the beds, so that i can put in a layer of green manures (cover crops).



Lettuce Tree

Here i am trying to get the most out of my balcony space. Obviously, the vertical direction is the way to go...

Raised beds

Raised bed construction. The decision for raised beds was mainly made to avoid waterlogged soil.

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.

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.
