Our teaching site is a working demonstration rice farm that promotes organic sustainable regenerative agriculture, using new technologies and Agricultural Heritage Systems for food security with Regenerative agriculture and applied biodiversity. Founded in 2010, Permaculture Institute Asia (PIA) runs a Permaculture Research Farm and home-stay in Issan, Thailand. Our goal is poverty alleviation thru innovation and technology. We educate and build out regenerative, holistic, circular economy capacity in Asia.
We cultivate many species in our newly established agro-forestry system, a beginning lush, productive tropical food forest. We use rice-fish, rice-livestock, rice duck and rice vegetable systems. Also Integrated Pest Management, Trees Outside Forests , and Agricultural Heritage Systems, Mapping Systems and Permaculture design and agroecology techniques. The Analysis and Mapping of Impacts under Climate change for Adaptation and Food security (AMICAF). In our Bio-dynamic organic garden we produce healthy organic food daily for our table. Our consulting builds and fine-tunes agro-ecological systems that conserves natural resources, support the surrounding ecosystem in a regenerative symbiosis, providing valuable ecological services such as carbon sequestration, soil and water retention, and the creation of wildlife habitat.
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.
Also see our sister organization Permaculture Institute Thailand , Permaculture Thailand along with affiliates (PRI Asia, Permaculture Institute Thailand, PRI Australia, Permies.com USA) 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 each January for one or two month internships for individuals, students, groups and volunteers. We work with local NGO/CBO’s, provide training in Permaculture, renewable energy, sustainable development and host an annual Permaculture Design Course (usually in January of each year in Thialand, Onein May in USA and one in October in Canada) . We are committed to promoting applied biological diversity as a means of ensuring food security, and replicating ecological services of primary forest in complex agro-forestry 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”.
In alignment with the UN Sustainable development Goals (SDG)
The fact is the world economy is remarkably unequal and also remarkably threatening to Earth itself. Humanity depends on nature for food and water, materials for survival, and safety from environmental threats as natural catastrophe and epidemics. For a species that depends on these environmental services we are not protecting the base of our own survival ….the planet and nature. The world economy is causing a gigantic environmental crisis, one that threatens the lives and well-being of billions of people and all other species on the planet. We provide solutions and alternatives thru practical hands on work and discussion of; circular economies, sustainable design, resilient alliances, regenerative agriculture,permaculture design, natural building, regenerative culture, holistic and systemic thinking.
