Karlshamn Permakultur Projekt

Project Type

Urban, Residential

Project Summary

We are hoping to inspire our urban neighborhood with our conversion from a boring compact lawn to an beautiful and abundant permaculture garden. We are excited to see frogs, bees and birds joining us now as we create mutually beneficial habitats for all to enjoy.

Project Description

Our 1700sqm urban residential project began in December 2014 when we bought the property. Once owned by an avid gardener, it was in a state of complete neglect for at least 15 years. There are several mature apple and cherry trees, a 40 year old grape vine, and random bramble berries and currants located around the property.

We are focusing on building soil. We use no-dig raised beds, deep mulching, abundant composting, broadfork aeration and paths on contour. We are increasing our fruit and nut production, focusing on edible perennial plants and main crop annuals. We have plans to harvest roof rainwater for buried irrigation lines using solar timers.

Our property is in prime view for our neighbours walking past, and we have received alot of questions and encouragement. The potential for community-building is exciting. In a traditional neighbourhood with manicured lawns and trimmed hedges, we really stand out. We hope to inspire our neighbours to return to their grandparents' roots, growing some food right on their own land and sharing with each other as much as we can.

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.
