Permaculture Service Awards – Recognition of Community Service

Criteria for selection

Permaculture Community Service Awards recognise those individuals who do not meet the criteria for Elder, but have made significant contributions to the permaculture community over at least ten years. Examples of their contributions may be on-ground projects both in Australia/New Zealand and/or overseas, continual service in developing and maintaining a community garden, an educational program in a school involving permaculture teaching, garden design and maintenance of the gardens, noteworthy involvement in developing a transition initiative or similar, or outstanding involvement in community-based organisations.

Nominations must be made using the template below. They can be made by anyone who has personal knowledge of the nominee and must have the nominee’s consent. A brief description of the nominee is required listing the kinds of permaculture activities that they are involved in, and over what periods in their life. Successful nominations are determined by a rotating panel comprising one member of the current APC committee, one from the previous APC committee, and one from the current Board of Directors (Ross Mars, John Champagne, and Virginia Solomon). Each nomination is assessed and a recommendation made to Permaculture Australia, who provide the plaques, and oversee and maintain the lists of successful award recipients.

Call for nominations for the next round of Service Awards is open now and closes March 25, 2018. Successful nominations will be recognised at APC14 in April, 2018.
