Project Summary

Centro de Entrenamiento en Prácticas de Permacultura y Agroecología, in English: training center in Permaculture and agro-ecology practices. Árbol proposes a CEPPA, built for the welfare of all those who participate in our projects, looking for the improvement of the environment by taking responsible actions in our daily lives, to develop sustainable projects in mutual interaction with the social environment andits culture, with focus on creating a resilient community.

Project Description

The need of generating a resilient community leads us to create CEPPA, which in acronyms is Centro de Entrenamiento en Prácticas de Permacultura y Agroecología, in English: training center in permaculture and agro-ecology practices. We generate, design and develop different proposals of social, cultural, economic, ecological, and artistic intervention, as well as emergency management in disaster areas with a practical educational approach towards the generation of a new integral community identity. Bio-Building & Agro ecology The design and construction we do is through social dialogue, the first step is obtaining information where the vulnerability, feasibility and viability of future interventions, the second step is to identify the needs and capabilities of the participants, in order to generate sustainable and inclusive solutions. Art, Culture & Innovation The focus is on reinforcing the local identity through the accurate collection of cultural information, to recognize their own different social dynamics and then transfer them into artistic expressions; it can go from informative and preventing signing, entertainment spaces for kids, teenagers and women groups. Including music, theater and traditional dances with a deep focus on educational approaches following the permaculture ethics principles: care of earth, care of people and fair share of surplus.

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.

People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course 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.
