Project Summary

Wyalong Farm will be developed in a series of Projects via participatory Workshops following the Memorandum of Understanding for becoming a Permaculture Research Institute 'Master Plan' site with the goal to establish an accredited Permaculture Demonstration and Education Centre.

Project Description

It’s September 2014 and now and during the coming three years I am looking for likeminded to come onboard as a part of a band to establish ECOsustain as a Not For Profit (Charitable Trust) to run 61Ha Wyalong Farm which is being developed to offer real-life experiences in land-based sustainable living & agriculture, environmental practices & local history.

The successful applicants will be able to fulfil the roles within the Demonstration Site to compliment my role as Project Manager / Administration Assistant.

That being (at least) either as an:

1. Educator / Project Manager or

2. Administration Manager / Educator.

If you are looking for a quiet place to be but be useful believe you have skills we can use and are an avid recycler and retrofitter please get in touch as this may be the place for you.

The opportunity also provides the successful applicants a place to establish their own complimentary business.

Examples of other business opportunities to be offered to ‘Ethical Angels’ are: Larger scale egg and poultry production, Aquaponics, Beekeeping, Plant Nursery.

As well as courses in Permaculture Design ~ from Introduction to Teacher Training the following are examples of

Workshop Ideas: Food Forests ~ Natural Bee keeping ~ Aquaponics ~ polished concrete with broken glass ~ bottle walls ~ biotechure structures ~ rocket stove ~ composting ~ worm farming ~ mushroom farming ~ cob and straw bale chicken house 

Other activities planned are bushwalking ~ birdwatching ~ natural (broad acre) farming field days ~ heritage and history local and beyond ~ Landcare through conservation / revegetation land management

To progress the Permaculture Projects at Wyalong Farm and to spread the word about Permaculture especially within the region I have: 





‘A Celebration Connecting the Many Facets of a Permanent Culture + A Special Screening of ‘Fair Food – The Documentary’

It’s a Full Day of happenings starting at 12.00pm and the line-up of presenters is top-notch as their bios (down the page) can attest.

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.

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.
