Project Summary

Jakarta's first eco cafe and bar in South Jakarta, Beehive Cafe is an open air, bamboo structure surrounded by beautiful (partially edible) gardens, and serves mainly organic and local food.

Project Description

After the island project, a friend noted that we should do something similar in the city.  I moved our island office out of my house and to a venue literally within about 5 minutes walk from my house, on the main north - south road through Jakarta, on Jl. Fatmawati (an extension of the main road - Jl. Sudirman). 

It used to be a bar serving cold beer, good steaks, and had some decent food.  It was open air. 

I decided Jakarta needed a good eco hub, and so I set about creating one at this little place, and took over the major shareholding position with profits from the island project. 

We regularly host eco events, have shown documentaries, have a permaculture garden, rain water catchment systems, super efficient LED lighting, and serve a lot of organic and locally sourced food.

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.
