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 Love & Haiti Project’s mission is to provide the people of Haiti a sustainable transitional housing solution, teach a curriculum of skills to empower villagers toward self-sufficiency with earthbuilding and permaculture farming, and assist with the rebuild of this recently disaster-struck country by serving the 1.3 million displaced people still living in tent cities today.
The Love & Haiti Project team consists of a group of Filmmakers, Natural Builders and
Permaculturists that are sharing the technologies of sustainable
building and farming methodologies to our brothers and sisters of Haiti.
In March 2011- The Love & Haiti Project will be arriving to Haiti with all the equipment necessary to build a 12 family eco-village using Nader Khalili's superadobe
method that will consist of 12- 10'x20' living units, full water
catchment/aquaponics system and a permaculture farm (location has been
contracted and funding obtained). Upon completion, we will return to the
US with our experiences of this build and piece together a full
teaching curriculum to then return to Haiti with in July 2011. Our model
is to work with the people of Haiti to ensure that the program in
alignment with their cultural practices and "teach the teachers" through
community empowerment so that they can create these sustainable
eco-villages on their own.
