Welcome to our own growing web of permaculturists, whether you are a practitioner, teacher, consultant, aid worker, project leader or activist! This site intends to keep you updated about ongoing projects and others’ activities, allowing you to run your own permaculture profile where you can list your activities in the topics by location and type, thereby allowing us to search and share our resources and information with each other. In this way, we can create, maintain and enjoy a supportive network! It is free to join.

The Clonakilty Community Garden in West Cork, was initiated by the Lions Club, residents of the direct provision center and Clonakilty Friends of Asylum Seekers. The garden has grown steadily over the years, thanks to support from a myriad other local community groups.

An Gáirdín is an ecological and educational center for sustainability whose main focus is to learn how to live again through “making again a garden of this place”. Being a diverse, large and organic garden, the principles of permaculture were introduced to its management last year (2017); everything converges towards An Gáirdín to grow into a permaculture demonstration site.
A 10×20m growing area is already in place. As the land is extremely wet, it would benefit from being redesigned in a way that would maximize the drainage.
PDC ~ Permaculture Design Certificate
The 72-hour Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course allows you to be the change you want to see in the world. Based on Bill Mollison’s Permaculture Designers’ Manual, it provides skills and solid knowledge in Permaculture design, as a science, that can create abundant ecosystems sustainability in the garden, on a small farm or on a larger broad acre farm or landscape.
What would Permaculture be without its teachers – those people that are able to pass on this incredibly diverse and rich phenomenon, that is so hard to put into words and nevertheless has touched and transformed thousands and thousands of people worldwide? It is the teachers that make permaculture accessible and allow the spark to move on to touch more people’s lives, in the workshops and trainings that they are running.
A permaculture plot that is designed and maintained in harmony with nature should remain fairly disease-free. With the right sort of companion planting, use of native species suited to the soil and climatic conditions, soil improvement and irrigation techniques, the plants on the site should generally be free from the worst ravages of pest insects, nematodes and vegetative diseases.
