Urban, Rural, Educational

Project Summary

The Permaculture Research Institute of Turkey has been founded to expand the knowledge and practice of permaculture as a whole-system design science and to primarily facilitate the uptake of permaculture throughout the Republic of Turkey. PRI Turkey seeks to provide solutions leading to permanent abundance by training local people to become leaders of a designed transition from the destructive and wasteful status quo to a universally beneficial web of visible and invisible, living and technological systems, primarily in their communities and bioregions.

Project Description

PRI Turkey recognises and will endevour to cultivate the potential of being at the multiple edge of cultures, climates and continents, applying the ecosystemic principles of permaculture design to this highly charged land pulsating with energy; gathering the experience and reaping the results to share with the global permaculture community and the rest of the world. PRI Turkey is thus an invaluable station/haven/node for PRI interns on their way to becoming the veteran aid and earth repair workers that our planet has long been in desperate need of.

PRI Turkey will support and collaborate with all groups and individuals pertaining to the ethical basis of permaculture:
1. Care of the Earth
2. Care of People
3. Setting limits to needs to set aside resources to further the first two.

PRI Turkey works in collaboration with The Permaculture Research Institute and other Permaculture Research Institute Master Plan sites worldwide.

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.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

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.


PDC Teacher

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.
