Sanctuary One

Project Type


Project Summary

Sanctuary One is a care farm and domestic animal sanctuary in Southern Oregon. Using permaculture ethics and principles transforming people animals and earth.

Project Description

As a care farm we have people, young and old, come and tour, learn and work. This helps them, the animals and nature. We are 55 acre property on the Applegate River, with 60 animals currently, horses, cows, goats, sheep, pigs, geese, ducks, llamas, and cats. We are building two 500 sq ft houses for our  cat and dog village that will allow us to handle more cats and dogs. We are  building a 12'x14' load bearing strawbale arch cottage that we may use for many uses. We have strawbale parties and invite the local permaculture community to participate. It will be in a 60'x60' chicken garden with apple trees and comfrey and other plants that chickens like.  We're currently doing 100' hugelkultur row made with the wood left over from the construction. Have completed 200' Sheet mulching for spring planting - last year planted 1000 strawberry plants  and already last 3 months finished adding 2000 garlic plants. 3 and 7 year master plan design just started using permaculture principles. Earthcare, Peoplecare and Animal care managers run day to day operation. Give tours Wednesday and Saturdays talking about animals, the earth, the intrinsic value of nature, permaculture ethics and principles. we rescue  abused and neglected animals and work with them to socialize and heal them and possibly adopt them to a new hope. We use the manure as a source of compost and teach composting classes. We use interns and teach them classroom and hands on animal husbandry, organic farming and permaculture. We are always looking for the best interns possible, if you are interested or know someone who would be great, go to the website and check us out. We plan to offer more permaculture workshops and classes in the coming year.

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 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.

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.
