Project Summary

Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture is a working permaculture site with an educational focus. It is a welcoming place for anyone to learn new skills based on the ethics and principles of permaculture.

Project Description

Kinstone property, located in western Wisconsin, is a meditative, holistic landscape being designed and developed using permaculture principles as guidelines for the restoration of the land and rejuvenation of the people that will come to be there.  Kinstone is also a place for people to reconnect with what is important to them whether that is connections with earth and stone or with soul and spirit.

Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture, founded in 2012, is a Permaculture education center that offers the traditional Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) as well as Advanced Permaculture courses in Teaching, Design, and Farming plus many short courses and workshops.  Courses at Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture promote practical, hands-on activities in the field based on season and site requirements. This gives participants a basic background and context to extend the principles, methods and values of Permaculture into a working practice that moves beyond mere theory to develop life transforming skills and abilities.

A unique feature of Kinstone Academy of Applied Permaculture is our focus on natural building.  We offer a variety of natural building workshops that give students a chance to take part in building natural structures that will become and always be part of Kinstone.  If natural building is an interest of yours then you may want to visit to see our cordwood, cob, cobwood, and post & beam framed structures.  We are in the middle of a new project to construct a welcome center. We have plans for additional natural buildings over the next few years including an earthbag root cellar, an earth sheltered cabin, a strawbale cabin and others.

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

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.
