Project Summary

In 2016 I rented an apartment block in the heart of the capital city of Nicosia in Cyprus. I have began restoration and with no real budget, I have built a kitchen and two equipped bedrooms that I rent to travelers and short term guests. I also have a modular space for film screenings, classes and workshops such as Yoga and Meditation for now. These are my forms of income for the rent and for the roof terrace where I aim to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs and fish using Aquaponics. I plan to supply the Old Walled City with healthy organic produce for local businesses such as restaurants, cafes and bars. To begin with I will have approx. 30m2 of planting space for my produce and I have already made connections with two cafes, a restaurant and an organic crafts shop. The plan is to continue upgrading and adding more to the system as Rooftop Mini-Farm grows according to demand.

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.

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.
