Project Summary

O Grupo Curare de Permacultura é um coletivo formado em Botucatu (cidade no interior de São Paulo) por amigos e amigas que estudaram juntos na UNESP (Universidade Estadual Paulista "Julio de Mesquita Filho"), provenientes dos cursos de Biologia, Nutrição e Agronomia. Depois de um período de atuação no interior da universidade, o grupo criou suas próprias asas e vem atuando em Botucatu e em outras cidades do estado de São Paulo. Nosso maior objetivo é trabalhar a favor da popularização da Permacultura – considerando o contexto de difícil acesso aos cursos e discussões às pessoas de baixa renda e participantes de movimentos sociais / ambientais. Assim, temos organizado Cursos de Desgin em Permacultura (PDC) anuais, em Botucatu, a valores mais acessíveis. Além disso, buscamos uma aproximação com movimentos sociais, grupos de agroecologia e outras vertentes que atuam a favor de uma sociedade equilibrada ecologicamente e socialmente justa. Além dos PDCs, temos como atividades a realização de visitas guiadas em Permacultura no Sítio Beira Serra (Botucatu), organização de cursos e oficinas práticas, exposição de tecnologias sustentáveis em feiras e outros eventos e realização de atividades em educação ambiental.

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.
