Ca n'Aline 2011

Project Type

Rural, Residential, Educational, Permaculture Local Group Transition Town Permablitz

Project Summary

My home was designed as a final excercise in the PDC I attended in Oct 2011, and I thought upon coming home again... why not make the design reality??

Project Description

The idea that occurred to me on the PDC was that of a recreational area both for children (touchy-feely path with educational value) and adults (alternative social spot), whilst providing food for the residents (2-6 people) as well as regenerating the earth. 

The plot measures around 2000m2 and a house of approx. 80m2 sits on this plot in the SW corner. The property is located about 200m away from both the beach and the village, lies on the edge of a residential area and has it's own water (well and rainwater cistern). 

On the 12th of November I hope to welcome a group of Permablitzers, although the design still needs some reworking and lots of materials need to be gathered. 

let's just DO IT! 

To be continued.

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.

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.

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.
