Semujok Bamboo

Project Type

Rural, Commercial, Community, Demonstration

Project Summary

Land of 2.3 acres is planted with healthy young oil palm at current. Proposing to keep land cover and slowly cull as necessary. Plan to established bamboo cultivation.

Project Description

1) Fencing around perimeter with access gate (wide enough for a lorry). Fencing should serve as a means to mark the property and deter animals such as monkeys and monitor lizards. Visible privacy should also be considered.

2) Water harvesting - yes, required. All options like rain water collection using tanks and dug up ponds are being considered.

3) Small dwelling or huts. Should provide shade and a place to rest. Capacity: roughly for 6 to 8 pax. Make separate huts/cabins.

4) Small food crop garden. For own consumption. Include fruit trees like banana and papaya.

5) Small fish pond

6) Small chicken coop. For meat and egg production. No more than a dozen birds will be fine.

7) Main crop area: approx 1.5 acres. This will be bamboo, mainly for bamboo shoots production. Some should be left to grow to serve as construction material. Locally consumed bamboo are generally clumpers. Leave a small space for trial runs for other species.

8) Compost corner

9) Compost toilet. Septic toilet is fine too. Or one of each.

10) Shower cubicle. Using water from rain collection? Eventually water from the main grid will be installed.

11) Small reed bed for grey water.

12) Essentially, the plan is to make this a small bamboo farm with the additional homesteading elements to provide enough food and shelter for a small number of people.

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.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute 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.
