Project Summary

french speaking association of Permaculture http://permaculture.fr This is one of the projects I presented for my diploma.

Project Description

Brin de Paille (one straw) is an association aiming at creating and maintaining a network and its tools for the community of francophone permies.

Created in 2007, Brin de Paille has launched a series of Permaculture festivals.

Membership is free for permaculture students and diplomees

Membership is acquired through a "conscious price" (not sure of translation)

The association works using consensus and decision making tools

It offers now to its members:

- a website giving news about the association activity

- a directory of its members and different permies or permaculture projects

- a forum

- a newsletter

- a website distributing news from different permaculture blogs (in french)

- and much more...

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.
