Launch of Crowdfunding website going really well.

Project: WeTheTrees Crowd Funding Platform

Posted by Christian Shearer about 8 years ago

In just over a month, WeTheTrees has proven itself to be an invaluable resource to the Permaculture community

For anyone who has not heard, WeTheTrees.com launched just over a month ago. It is a crowdfunding platform focused on permaculture, sustainability, and social change. It launched like a rocket, and has been doing exceptionally well since.

WeTheTrees Click here to check it out.

In just over a month, the site now has 12 campaigns running, and has raised over $11,500 for those projects. Two campaigns have completed, with each receiving over 200% of their goal!

The outpouring of support to the site from the Permaculture community has been incredible, and rightly so, because there are such interesting projects up on the site currently. These include the ever popular Permaculture Ukulele Musical Project, which is a campaign to produce a musical album of songs dedicated to the permaculture principles. There is also the Living Soil Saves Lives Campaign, which is raising money to build soil food web labs in India. The group has previously worked with Vandana Shiva and has been encouraged to do similar in other regions of India. There is a project to build a school garden in Nepal, a sustainability project in Peru, and many others.

Come check it out. You will enjoy having a look around.

Best to all, and thanks for what you do!

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.

pri_teacher

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.
