    A Tropical Permaculture Guidebook – a gift from Timor Leste.
    The Permatil team has been active in Timor Leste for the past 15 years supporting communities with their food, water and shelter. In 2006 Permatil gathered together the knowledge learnt and published ‘A Permaculture Guidebook from East Timor’ that was a practical reference guide to implementing permaculture techniques in tropical climates in the region.
    It was a resounding success with the Department of Agriculture in Timor Leste issuing copies to almost 500 extension officers and the Education Department using the guidebook as a reference to develop the social science and culture national curriculum.
    It’s been a popular publication and often difficult to get original copies with the feedback about it always being positive regarding its usefulness. Many copies have been photocopied and distributed throughout SE Asia to aid workers and used as the text book on many PDC’s.
    The original authors, Lachlan McKenzie and Ego Lemos are now working on a new edition that will make the contents more generic to all tropical regions around the world.
    They need financial support and donations are gratefully accepted at –
