Permaculture Asia, Permies Asia and Permaculture Institute Asia
A working demonstration farm that promotes sustainable agriculture, appropriate technology and food security using permaculture principles and applied biodiversity. Founded in 2010, Permaculture Institute Asia (PIA) runs a Permaculture Research Farm-stay in Issan, Thailand.
We cultivate many species in our newly established agro-forestry system, a beginning lush, productive tropical food forest. In our Bio-dynamic garden we produce healthy daily food for our table. We are building and fine-tuning an agro-ecological system that conserves natural resources, and supports the surrounding ecosystem in providing valuable ecological services such as carbon sequestration, soil and water retention, and the creation of wildlife habitat, yes we have bee’s.
PIA also serves as a genetic seed bank for indigenous species and a buffer zone to the adjacent farms and ecosystems. We are powering more by renewable energy, and our water is pumped from a pond using photo-voltaic panels. We are also work with local communities installing village level photo-voltaic pumps.
The world seems to be teetering on the brink of environmental calamity, but hope remains strong here – and rightly so. Around the globe, there is a burgeoning resistance comprised of many and eco farmers who are regenerating their farms, back yards, soils, cities, watersheds, wildlife ecosystems and human communities by practicing capacity building Permaculture and holistic management. This resilience movement is global, it’s culturally diverse, and its working!
We all need better access to the idea’s, research and products grown by people who care for the earth. Farmers likewise need more opportunities to sell their healthy organic products in a way that recognizes their dedication to regenerating the environment and ecosystems we all depend upon.
Bold brands, that are striving to make real change in the marketplace, need access to the raw materials, consumers need access to material stewardship, these enable us all to deliver environmentally enhancing products everyone can feel safe to eat and proud to wear. Permaculture Institute Asia , Permaculture Institute Thailand , Permaculture Thailand long with affiliates are committed to breaking through the barriers that have stood in the way.
We invite you to come and explore this farm stay site to learn about the exciting new options to engage with this resilience building, sustainable movement.
We host interns, students, groups and volunteers, work with local NGO/CBO’s, provide training in Permaculture, renewable energy and host an annual Permaculture Design Course. We are committed to promoting applied biological diversity as a means of ensuring food security, and replicating ecological services of primary forest in complex agroforestry systems.
If you are a passionate and creative person, who is not afraid to discover what it takes to make a difference, help fix the mess greedy humanity has perpetrated on nature and planet Earth, then we invite you to join us. “only when people live differently will society be different”.
