Project Summary

Instituto de Permacultura Tierra del Sol, a working permaculture education and demostration farm situated in the dry tropics.

Project Description

Tierra del Sol is a working 

permaculture education and 

demonstration farm  situated in the 

Central Valleys of Oaxaca, México. 

We´ve being working on the land for 

11 years, work is consistently in 

progress to develop the systems. 

Our mission is to implement and 

disseminate alternative methods of 

organic food production, ecological 

restoration and environmental 

education in order to contribute to 

the creation of a sustainable society. 

Tierra del Sol has a history of self- 

sustained operations: one hundred 

cents of every dollar would go 

directly to the project. We are 

committed to the benefit of all 

through our work. We offer students 

the opportunity to learn while 

experiencing a real life permaculture- 

farming situation.

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.
