permaculture around the world

MEDITERRANEAN PERMASCHOOL, GREECE www.facebook.com/Nea-Guinea Nea Guinea is a non-profit one-acre permaculture farm in Athens that models permaculture practices and offers education programs.

They transform their physical and social spaces, grow food, enhance collective resilience, reclaim some control over their lives and begin to heal from the trauma that brought them to the refugee camps. ETHIOPIAN VILLAGE WITH PERMACULTURE APPROACH In the far north of Ethiopia,…
