Project Summary

Permaculture redesign of school garden, implemented by neighborhood volunteers and managed by students and a school garden manager. Includes rainwater harvesting in tank and landform, perennial polyculture edges, realignment of beds for maximum garden space, greenhouses for propagation, and reused materials.

Project Description

Lincoln School Garden

Myself and a partner received a grant to redesign the entire school campus to promote a healthier, active lifestyle for the school children. Other elements of the entire campus design are being implemented, including covered bicycle parking and path realignment, but the school garden is the portion of the design that has really manifested.

There was a haphazardly designed garden at the site previously, so we expanded and reoriented all of the elements. It now includes a new bed design, perennial polyculture border beds, a rainwater harvesting tank, overflow rain garden, realignment of two greenhouses for propagation, and utilization of the border fence for vertical growing of fruiting vines.

The project has been implemented entirely by neighborhood volunteers and parents from the school, the design is now almost completely installed.

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.

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.


PDC Teacher

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.
