Project Summary

The Forever Forestry Initiative is a project sponsored by the largest steel manufacturing company in East Africa for the purposes of re-foresting the entire African contenent through the provision of free training, consultation, and design services which will be spread through a dynamic and ever growing group of certified foresters who can make a living out of interacting as Guild members of the project to provide tangible solutions to the entire Continent of Africa from the most biologically diverse country within it: Uganda.

Project Description

FF, Forever Forestry was created out of the desire to provide the East African regions most profitable steel products manufacturer with the best possible social responsability project. Out of this goal Aaron Elton provided a comprehensive and self sustaining plan of generating a guild of designers who are supported by this company to recieve training, continual information support, and an ever growing geographical database of organic genetics, aka large scale dynamic nurseries.

Our first location is set to be constructed on a 1.5 acre site within the primary headquarters of the Roofings Group within uganda; the top provider of steel products for the east african region. This site will include a training center, nurseries, and a range of sustainble examples for the average African home. This center will be the first of a series of self generating nurseries which will provide our designers with intelectual and physical resources to encourage the re-forestation of the african contenent in many years to come with a sincere and dedicated focus on the emediate needs of rural families and communities. Though the project is a corporate responsability project, it is entirely based upon permaculture principles and has been forcasted through many years experience to be a sure way to make the healthy re-establishment of natural and abundant eco systems a profitable and handsome lifestyle for all of our clients.

I believe this was the type of relationship, that being between the massive industrial complex and the local dig duggers that mr. mollison had dreamed about during his trippy trips in Africa at the beggining of his permaculture crusade.

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

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.
