GUANGA Permanente

Project Type

Rural, Residential, Demonstration, Educational

Project Summary

GUANGA Permanente is based on a rural area (4,7ha) in a cool-temperate climate zone at 400 masl, 30 km from the Cantabrian sea. We are working for it to be a self sustainable residential farm, as well as a demonstration center and a place in which we could show and investigate different degrowth alternatives, focusing on the development of educational programmes.

Project Description

As we have already exposed, our main goal is to create a sustainable system based on self-sufficiency that will guarantee supplies for a small family and visitors. Sharing the knowledge acquired is a key point for us, that’s why we also want to establish a demonstration center, a place in which we will show and investigate different degrowth alternatives for a rural environment that could offer solutions for the future challenges we face as society. Furthermore, we want to place education at the centre of our project, focusing on the development of workshops and programmes (for kids and adults) that will emphasize on three core ideas directly related with the ethical basis of permaculture: 1. Play: we want to encourage play as the best way of learning, as well as to develop cooperative, collaborative and respectful skills that can build a sense of community that will help us celebrate and recognize diversity as a valuable source that enriches communities. 2. Care: we think it’s crucial to provide open spaces to discuss and learn about healthy habits, the use of medicinal plants, seed keeping and to underline caring of land and people as essential for our personal growth. 3. Create: we also find decisive to potentiate imagination through different artistic approaches that will enable those immersed in the project to acquire valuable tools to explore new languages and problem solving abilities using their own creativity and the resources at hand. Finally, it’s important for us to highlight that these three main ideas will emphasize the need to address an active and compromised responsibility with the environment we inhabit. For workshops and programmes lasting more than one day, accommodation in a camping area will be offered.

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.
