Gateway Gardens

Project Type

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

Project Summary

A Permaculture Sanctuary

Project Description

Situated on 80 hillside acres in the far southern reaches of the Umpqua watershed, Gateway Gardens serves as a headquarters and stopover for regional sustainability and relocalization efforts.  The food forest, gardens, water systems, and cottage industries of Gateway Gardens demonstrate strategies for self-sufficiency and create numerous educational opportunities.

Gateway Gardens also serves in a non-profit capacity as a catalyst for localization efforts in the Cow Creek Valley, working closely with local farms and investing in the creation of viable community networks.

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.

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.
