Permafund has been funding small projects for years now, but how does Permaculture Australia’s present Permafund team see it developing?
So here it is… an open invitation to spend the weekend of 21-22 November in a superb permaculture homestead… your opportunity to meet fellow permies and the Permafund Committee to brainstorm how best we can help others.
Permafund is now supporting targeted projects such as the Tropical Permaculture Guidebook from Timor Leste. This project is being supported partly through Bernd Langer’s Timor coffee importing business.
How do you deliver an 11 day Permaculture Design Course in the shade of a tree? Permaculture Australia’s John McKenzie reports on his time in Haiti and the work of Permafund that is supporting village development on the Caribbean island.
The 2015 Permafund grant round is now open for application. Grants are available for amounts up to AUD $2,000 to community based organisations in Australia or overseas — closing date 16 October 2015.
