Guibi Zakko Forest Garden

Project Type

Rural, Residential, Demonstration

Project Summary

Guibi Zako Forest Garden is a steadily evolving sustainable living project which draws inspiration from both Permaculture and Shizen-Nou.パーマカルチャーや自然農に学び、サスティナブル(持続可能)な生き方に移行中。

Project Description

We are in the process of transitioning from 20 or more years of city life to a life more gentle and considerate of the plane...t and all those who, like ourselves, call it home.
We think that we have about 25 years of work ahead of us to reach the kind of balance we're aiming for though the efforts we've made to date are making a difference in our perceptions of reality already.


Mission: To reduce our reliance on a system that we find hard to accept while sowing the seeds of an alternative. As Gandhi is often ...quoted as having said; We must be the change we wish to see.


Products: Love, tolerance and, if we get it right, inspiration.

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.
