Project Summary

Windward is a cooperative community of over thirty years dedicated to preserving and developing village scale technologies needed to support a thriving sustainable community on marginal land. Windward is a small community, and does not intend to grow into a large one. However, we are looking for several more brave hearts and wild souls who want to join us in the adventure. Today, Windward is in it's second generation, having made a bold organizational leap from the founders to a next generation of stewards.

Project Description

Windward has been working to create a self-reliant rural community (or village)  of around 20 people. It has seen ups and downs,  and had a lot of

As of 2012 Windward encompasses 131 acre of mixed Ponderosa pine, Douglas fir and Oregon-White Oak woodlands  and highland prairie.

We have about 10 acres of intensive agriculture, food forests, annual gardens, etc.  and many more acres of forest pasture. 

We are continuing to advance the ecological agriculture practices suitable for our land,  while working within the existing infrastructure that was put in place over communities history. There is so much going on it is hard to put it all down here.

We are engaged in the whole spectrum of what a community needs. including Food, clothing, building materials, fuel and energy, forage and craft materials, and the cooperative social structures needed to hold a culture (people + a life way + capital + knowledge and values) together over the course of generations.

More information about Windward is available on our website.

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.
