Project Summary

We are creating replicable closed-loop mixed & integrated farming systems for (and with) Orang Asli indigenous families in Malaysia

Project Description

Hi, Dennis here **PROJECT** This first project is at Kampung Kachau Luar near Semenyih (Selangor Malaysia, about 50 kms outside Kuala Lumpur). (we call it KKL - btw Kampung means Village:) It is a commercial venture (we aren't believers in charity:) and we have a profit share deal with our local indigenous partners. We are also creating a CSR fund for corporates to donate too, which will give us the capital to set up the farms with the Asli partners - these capex funds are repayable from harvest profits. Read how here https://www.csr-done-differently.weebly.com **GOALS** The intention is to generate an average of RM1,000 (US$250) per month for our Asli family partners once we go to the planned Profit share of 70 / 30 (70 Asli partner, 30 us). For now the profit share on this one is 80/20 my way (80 us / 20 Asli partner) because we are covering all learning and set up costs). Once we can show we can deliver that income consistently, the farm replication flow should be large with many interested partners looking to commence their own "Asli Brand Farm". Those farms will be on the 70/30 profit share basis We handle all of the systems development, marketing, product off take etc. **OVERVIEW** We are integrating pond fisheries (tilapia, baung, patin, red tail catfish), farm birds (chickens, ducks, geese) with black soldier fly feed systems and vetiver grass water cleaning & managing systems. Also looking at pond fishing (ie catch and release) as a revenue generator as well, in addition to other opportunities we are exploring. **PERMACULTURE PRACTICES** This first farm is the trial farm, once we have the systems right, we will be replicating with other Orang Asli families at this Kamoung (and other kampungs). Obviously, we are trying to integrate permaculture / regenerative agri and organic practices into the farming systems. Primarily with this in mind, we are replacing commercial feeds with BSF larvae and other natural feed products, cleaning our fish oonds with vetiver grass rafts rather than chemicals and not using chemical fertilizers / pesticides on our vegetables. More to come:) Regular updates at www.facebook.com/csr-done-differently

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.

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC 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.
