Raising Money For New Facility

Project: The Panya Project

Posted by Christian Shearer over 9 years ago

We are launching a fundraising campaign aimed at raising enough money to build a new teaching facility as well as the filming and production of a permaculture in the tropics film.

The Panya Project has some big ideas for the coming year!

We're Fundraising for the New Sala and a Permaculture Movie!

As you know, Panya Project, the permaculture project in Northern Thailand is still plugging along, hosting high quality courses, growing a bunch of food, and contributing to the global movement toward a healthy social and environmental world.  We have seen hundreds of people come through here, and most leave sharing that their time with us was inspiring and fun. In fact, right now there is a Permaculture Design Course happening at Panya.  Possibly the last in the old "Sala." And we even have a new website! Check it out.

Panya Project is calling out for a bit of help just now.  We're fund-raising for a new central building (sala) and to help make a Tropical Permaculture in Action movie. The new building will be beautiful and help the community so much.  And the movie is going to be made by an amazing film crew from Ahooha Productions.  We are very excited about it.  Once it is funded and made, we want to give it away for free!

Please check out the fund-raiser, and consider donating even just a few dollars.


All Donations Matched!

Lots of love to all,

Christian Shearer
and the People at Panya

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
