Project Type

Permaculture Local Group/Transition Town/Permablitz

Project Summary

The Permaculture Association of WA aims to inspire and help people learn and use permaculture in their lives by providing regular e-news, website and magazine publications, re-skilling workshops and presentations. On the ground we set up and support local groups, permaculture training, alternative skill courses, and Permablitz programs.

Project Description

The Permaculture Association of Western Australia aims to inspire and help people learn and use permaculture in their lives by providing you with regular e-news, magazine publications and free entry to presentations. Membership fees enable PAWA to deliver these services as well as further develop its events calendar, website and other permaculture opportunities.

Permablitz Perth is here to help people get together and have fun learning about, designing and creating suburban permaculture systems. Growing mail list of 250+ is just starting to enjoy blitz's ever few months. Slow to get organized but a committee is now in full swing, we are always looking for local new designers to sharpen their skills in design and consultation.

Local groups are growing and currently we have a Perth Hills group, Northern APEs group, and soon to be forming Freo Group. These will expand in member numbers with the growing association and splinter into more local groups as numbers get over 30 people groups. These small local groups apart from giving Permies a place to belong and educating the local public will form the true catalyst for the effective roll-out of Permablitz Perth and Seed Saver Network and other Food Sovereignty and transition town initiatives.

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 teach some version of 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.
