Project Summary

Creating edible landscapes at schools situated in vulnerable communities. I am consulting on a project in Ocean View for Neighbourhood Farm where I am guiding the implementation of a design for an edible and medicinal gardens. The aim is to expose learners to cultural and environmental experiences to enhance their appreciation, awareness and understanding of their environment within the school and the broader community.  Ocean View, Cape Town, was established in 1968 as a township for coloured people who had been forcibly removed from so called "white areas" such as Simon's Town, Noordhoek, Red Hill, Glencairn by the apartheid government under the Group Areas Act. It was first called Slangkop and the first resident moved in 1 August 1968. It was named Ocean View, although the government had removed the residents from their previous seaside homes and views. As a result, its history is embedded in apartheid, and there is still much bitter resentment among many people. Marine Primary School in Ocean View provides a happy and caring environment where learners are able to develop to their full potential. Their mission is to develop learners holistically to reach their full potential to become responsible, competent, independent, well-rounded citizens and life-long learners equipped to meet future challenges. So far we have mapped out, dug and planted two swales and berms with indigenous local medicinal and food bearing plants. And we have prepared 13 composting 'banana' circles which will serve as an efficient way for us to collect as much organic matter as possible on-site while also producing foods such as sweet potatoes, bananas and papayas.

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.
