Project Description

Gokiro devient petit à petit, un lieu de recherche et d'expérimentation par des connaissances acquises aux fils des ans. L'idée de créer un site de démonstration en design écologique vint naturellement par le besoins ressenti de partager ces connaissances. Le bût étant de facilité une transition vers un monde durable par l'éducation. La nature étant notre première enseignante. Nos divers projets s'inspirent des principes et l'éthique de permaculture, autant que des traditions ancestrales. Le site de Gokiro situé à Saint-Marcellin, dans la belle province du Québec au Canada, en montage à un peu plus de 300 m d'altitude. Les été y sont courts et chaud et les hivers long, venteux et neigeux.


Gokiro becomes little by little a place of research and experimentation with knowledge acquired over the years. The idea of ​​creating a demonstration site in ecological design naturally came from the felt need to share this knowledge.The goal is to facilitate a transition to a sustainable world through education. Nature being our first teacher. Our various projects are inspired by the principles and ethics of permaculture, as well as ancestral traditions. The Gokiro site located in Saint-Marcellin, in the beautiful province of Quebec in Canada, mounted at a height of just over 300 m. The summers are short and warm and winters are long, windy and snowy..

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.

Male memberFemale member

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.

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.
