Project Description

Our organization is a not for profit, non-partisan volunteer group focused on delivering popular education, supporting community projects and advocating for sustainable and socially just living spaces in Ottawa through liberation permaculture. We are committed to organizing around a respect for differences, solidarity and shared leadership.

In the past we have given workshops on guerrilla gardening, “seed bombs” and liberation permaculture in conjunction with various other groups. We aim to continue our popular education programming as well as expand into supporting persons and communities in organizing their communities around liberation permaculture principles. This will include coordinating “permablitzes”, supporting persons wishing to take permaculture design courses, and providing a vehicle for communities to communicate and organize for political and economic self-reliance.

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

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.
