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.
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.
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.
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.
The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to be involved in permaculture aid work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture aid worker experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.
The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to do paid permaculture design consultancy work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture consultancy experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.
Community projects are projects that help develop sustainable community interaction and increase localised resiliency.
PRI Maungaraeeda, Sunshine Coast
Project TypeRural, Demonstration, Educational, PRI Master Plan
Education for truly sustainable living to affect world change.
The Permaculture Research Institute Maungaraeeda, Sunshine Coast is a Noosa Hinterland (Queensland, Australia) based organisation promoting permaculture and self reliance education. It runs accredited Permaculture Design Certificate courses and Permaculture Life Skills Internships, much in the same way as the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia.
PRI-MSC is located on a picturesque property on the Sunshine Coast, only 40 minutes from Noosa and 25 minutes from Gympie. The site is a permaculture demonstration site (see project Maungaraeeda) and a working permaculture farm.
Due to the size of the farm, and to ensure each student gets maximum benefit, PRI-SC has capped their PDC courses to 20 students and their Permaculture Life Skills Practical courses to 8 students.
There are many projects still to be done and/or finished on the property; natural building and water management courses will be held here as part of the practical courses, and possibly also as stand alone courses.
PRI-MSC is modelled after PRI Australia and is very proud to be part of the PRI family!
