On the web-site and Facebook page of Visegrad and Beyond Network of Permaculture Centers you can promote your center, offer products and services, search for volunteers, sell and exchange planting material, be informed about what is going on in other centers via the (please, fill this form by 23rd of each month) and collaborate with them (please, join this closed Facebook group for permaculture centers). You don't need to speak English, as we we use Facebook and Google translate to remove the language barriers in communication between the centers and their potential visitors.

Funding opportunities and organizational trainings

Funding communication projects to mitigate anthropogenic climate change

Minor Foundation for Major Challenges (MFMC) shall support the development of innovative communication strategies that engage people, and that facilitate the transition necessary to prevent dangerous climate changes. Deadline - August 17 2018.

The International LAND (iLAND) Network

We want to work more actively with a first group of demonstration education centres, to help them understand and meet their needs to grow and become established, hoping that this will provide lessons for other centres to start or become stronger and more established around Europe/the world, although we know their will be differences across climatic and cultural ecosystems. For these initial iLAND centres we are looking for commitment to work together on areas such as translation of core education resources, such as Intro & PDC curriculum guides, and local tutor training and development. We also want to develop the IPEN website to help international collaboration between demonstration centres, so it will have a section particularly focused on iLAND centres.


Seed Bank

(offers and seed exchange events)

How to make the Seed Bank both simple and useful for permaculture centers?

Let’s share unique planting material - plants that that are hard to find in the seed shops, but which are particularly valuable in your permaculture center. For example, which are easy to propagate or self-seeding, require minimal maintenance, hardy to environmental conditions, resistant to pests and diseases, superfoods, valuable medicinal plants or important to maintain balance in your agroecosystem (e.g. nitrogen fixers, groundcovers, dynamic accumulators etc). Especially those, which combine several important function being  thus especially valuable in permaculture. Maybe, these are ancient or local cultivars which you want to maintain or spread, or tender / pot plants with especially delicious fruits or other edible parts. May each permaculture center define 3 - 5 of such plants and take a mission to preserve and spread it.

Though the project is called “Seed Bank”, many plants, especially named cultivars of trees and shrubs, are propagated vegetatively: by splitting shrubs, layering, grafting,cuttings etc. Meaning that you will hardy find them at the seed exchange events or in local seed repositories. In the column “Exchange conditions” we added the option “Order in advance”, so you can graft to requested rootstock or take cuttings only when requested. It would be mutually beneficial for permaculture centers to exchange useful and unique / rare plants, as both exchange parties will have something to offer in return. And you can exchange also during mutual visits and at the events, not only by post. In the section “Seed collection year” we added option “Always have viable seeds” meaning that you are taking care that the plant will thrive on your plot and you always have viable material to exchange. In such case enough to provide the information for the seed bank just once. And as this are your favourite plants you probably know everything about all their properties (or would like to learn to act as an education center).

Thus I propose to all centers (as well as to any other people or organization wishing to join the project) to take a mission to preserve and distribute valuable plants, master to propagate them, learn their properties and add 3 - 5 of “your” plants to this spreadsheet.

International courses and events

Collaborative topical visits, courses, workshop and apprentice programs

Our international network of permaculture center has a reach potential to design topical visits, courses, workshops and apprentice programs based on the expertise in our pool of centers and experts. This would be a valuable informal educational opportunities to dive in the field of interest and an advanced learning in addition to introductory and certification permaculture courses. Also it would be a logical continuation of this Visegrad program when centers start to collaborate independently as well as a prerequisite for another grant.

We did our best to define specializations of the centers registered. We tried to make these specializations noe very narrow so that it would be possible to find several experts among the centers and to collaborate. Though if you consider it reasonable you may propose several extra categories (e.g. berries, soft fruits etc) Please, write down in comments under the this post if you want us to re-assign specialization(s) of your center. This is not a list of everything what you do but rather your best experience where you feel the most competent to share your experience.

And let's start discussing about possible topical tours (visits), courses and apprenticeship (long term volunteering) for 2019 in the comments under respective posts.

Specializations

Dairy - e.g. free range pasture, cheese, yogurt etc. making

Vegetables - probably all centers grow them, but for topical education the most interesting are probably commercial systems (especially with organic, biodynamic etc certification), or if you grow something unusual (or developed an alternative processing methods) and managed to find a unique market niche, or have a unique experience / cultivation system to demonstrate.

Herbs and spices - if you are an expert, herbalist, grow your own or gather wild herbs, manufacture any herbal produce (medical, cosmetic etc), have your own business with herbs.

Orchard - again everyone have it, but commercial systems would be the most interesting for topical education, or of you have an expert knowledge, or developed / implemented a unique gardening and processing system.

Beekeeping - natural beekeeping.

Animal husbandry - free range, systems for self feeding, integration with the garden / greenhouse, expertize with specific animals, commercial systems.

Forest garden - it would be interesting to have a tour / courses to explore different approaches (e.g. forest garden and woodland garden), different sizes (any commercial systems with the forest garden or agroforestry), different stages of garden set-up and development. Maybe workshops on seasonal garden operations (also applicable to ‘Orchard’ specialization)

Intentional communities / ecovillages - here I combined both ecovillages and community (urban) garden projects as I believe that we can educate with holistic perspective on cooperation in both urban and rural context. Courses on different project planning and organizational frameworks (e.g. Dragon Dreaming, Sociocracy etc).

Ponds, aquaculture, water management - if you have an aquaculture system, dug your own natural pond (not obligatory with a clay retainer, but also with a plastic lining), know how to maintain it alive and functional, practice keyline system, have well developed rainwater harvesting system

Forestry - windbreaks, hedges, timber, energy (biomass), mushroom cultivation, berries etc.

Eco-building - construction from natural materials, passive houses (not neserrary with a natural materials), energy efficient stoves, ventilation, tiny houses etc.

Green tourism - different scales: farms, hotels or household, either as a main or an accessory business.

Crafts - carpentry, pottery, forgery etc.

Compiling information on community-led initiatives across Europe

Dear Colleagues.

You are invited to contribute to a new key strategic initiative: creation of a knowledge commons for community-led action on sustainability and climate change. Our vision is of a network of active transdisciplinary knowledge co-creation communities, sharing their skills and expertise in order to sustain a comprehensive repository and summary of available information, from academic, practitioner and all other sources. By pooling our efforts and working in cooperative fashion, we envision enabling all of us to be more effective in our work, because the information we need to support it is always readily available. By feeding back into the common pool based on our own work, each of us will in turn enrich this collective resource, maximising both individual and collective benefit while allowing the necessary maintenance work to be undertaken wherever interests and capacity best allow.

This project is currently being held within the ECOLISE Knowledge and Learning Team, by Tom Henfrey and Gil Penha-Lopes. We wish to invite, at this early stage, key member organisations and networks, including activists and researchers in the permaculture movement, to get involved and help shape and co-create this collective resource for the greatest common good. Our long-term aspiration is that this will be part of a transition towards collaborative, open source, commons based approaches to creating and sharing knowledge.

We are currently assembling information for pages about permaculture movements and projects in specific European countries, and thematic pages on all-permaculture projects. In the short term, these will feed into creation of a Status Report on community-led action on sustainability and climate change in Europe, with input open until December ahead of final release in February 2019. Longer-term we are seeking to assemble a wide community of co-creators to shape this resource as a key element in the permaculture research landscape.

If you would like to contribute, or want further information, please contact tom.henfrey@ecolise.eu

In community,

Tom Henfrey

2.08.19 No nonsense permaculture

Permaculture without nonsense, or a practical approach to the subject. You can read the theory roughly on the net, so the proportions of theory to practice in my workshop will be 20: 80, 20% theory, 80% practice.

Many people in permaculture are looking for shamanism and esoterism, and the creators of its principles were very practical people who tried to reconcile self-sufficiency with natural phenomena in nature. That's why my idea for the permaculture workshop is that there will be no bells, sending energy from the rainbow and lions leaping through flaming hoops, only the practical application of what nature tells us in the forest and in the woods.

Seed Bank

(offers and seed exchange events)

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

There is a number of seed stations, institutes, private collections and plant breeders, as well as seed exchange fares available. But you probably know perfectly well how difficult may it be to find the necessary seeds, plant information, and there are plenty of unpopular but extremely interesting and useful plants exist. Permaculture centers as the points of biodiversity, natural protection and regeneration should be actively involved in seed saving / exchange and it popularization. They should become the seed hubs in their regions.

HOW TO SUBMIT THE INFORMATION?

Please, type or copy-paste from your spreadsheet the information about your planting material. In many columns you would  need to choose options from the list (right click to select the cell and press arrow in its right corner). If you need to select several options or add an extra information, please, type it manually. If you need to copy similar infromation to multiple cells, enter it in the topmost cell and drag iright lower angle of the cell down. If you don't know all plant charactersitics (while discovering them might be and interesting and educational task for you) it's enough if you only indicate the plant name, exchange conditions and your contact details - we will add all missing details later on if we get funding or with the help of volunteers. For common crops it's enough to provide only the substantial information (e.g. indicate in the column "Origin" either this is old or local variety, provide its edibility rating and data on pest and disease resisitance).

HOW TO BROWSE AND ORDER?

You can sort entries alphabetically or filter by conditions. Select Data - Filter views - Create filler view (or press filter icon in the toolbar). Click arrow above the heading of espective column. Several filters can be applied simultaneously (e.g. show only drough-tolerant plants for certan layer or with some extra charactersitics). Please, contact the owner and agree on delivery (payed by reciever) and exchange conditions.

DO YOU WANT TO HELP?

Managing seedbank is an interesing and useful task enabling you to discover plenty of new valuable plants and their properties. Please, contact us by Email (permavisegradpublic(et)googlegroups.com) or in Facebook messenger (https://www.facebook.com/messages/t/permavisegrad).

Weeds! Weeds?

Weeds are the most admirable representatives of the flora. For a fantastically versatile race of superpowers, we simply say weird. Well, we know, it's very difficult to represent this view at full bust when we're on all fours for hours on a hot day. We hope this will be made easier for everyone involved in the conversation with Izó Gál and Zita Szalai, where we will look at some of the beneficial properties of weeds with many color images.

The event is organized by MAPER and SZIE Department of Organic and Sustainable Management Systems. There is no entrance fee, the suggested donation is 1000 Ft.

This time we are waiting for everyone in Building C - inside the building!

Funding opportunities

Bridge 47

Opportunity for Slovak permaculture centers to get 6 650 € for Global Citizenship Education or educational innovations. Deadline Nov 18.  

Seed Bank

(offers and seed exchange events)

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

There is a number of seed stations, institutes, private collections and plant breeders, as well as seed exchange fares available. But you probably know perfectly well how difficult may it be to find the necessary seeds, plant information, and there are plenty of unpopular but extremely interesting and useful plants exist. Permaculture centers as the points of biodiversity, natural protection and regeneration should be actively involved in seed saving / exchange and it popularization. They should become the seed hubs in their regions.

HOW TO SUBMIT THE INFORMATION?

Please, type or copy-paste from your spreadsheet the information about your planting material. In many columns you would  need to choose options from the list (right click to select the cell and press arrow in its right corner). If you need to select several options or add an extra information, please, type it manually. If you need to copy similar infromation to multiple cells, enter it in the topmost cell and drag iright lower angle of the cell down. If you don't know all plant charactersitics (while discovering them might be and interesting and educational task for you) it's enough if you only indicate the plant name, exchange conditions and your contact details - we will add all missing details later on if we get funding or with the help of volunteers. For common crops it's enough to provide only the substantial information (e.g. indicate in the column "Origin" either this is old or local variety, provide its edibility rating and data on pest and disease resisitance).

HOW TO BROWSE AND ORDER?

You can sort entries alphabetically or filter by conditions. Select Data - Filter views - Create filler view (or press filter icon in the toolbar). Click arrow above the heading of espective column. Several filters can be applied simultaneously (e.g. show only drough-tolerant plants for certan layer or with some extra charactersitics). Please, contact the owner and agree on delivery (payed by reciever) and exchange conditions.

DO YOU WANT TO HELP?

Managing seedbank is an interesing and useful task enabling you to discover plenty of new valuable plants and their properties. Please, contact us by Email (permavisegradpublic(et)googlegroups.com) or in Facebook messenger (https://www.facebook.com/messages/t/permavisegrad).

Perma Klub 2019/8 - Baji Béla: Changes in plants

Public · Hosted by Magyar Permakultúra Egyesület and SZIE Ökológiai és Fenntartható Gazdálkodási Rendszerek Tanszék

In plant determinants, we see the flowering state of wild plants, and in nature we notice the flowers. However, plants provide useful information about their habitat at all times of the year and / or are important for biodiversity. If you want to distribute them, finding mature fruit crops is a decisive factor in seed collection. Therefore, it would be important to recognize critical species at all seasons, in all stages of their development. I would like to help you with the slideshows I want to present in my presentation. A lecture is very little about all of these plants, in fact, a series of lectures would be needed. If you are interested in this topic, bring a pen pal with you and I will gladly share my presentation for memorization. In the pictures I give the Hungarian and scientific names of the plant in caption. The latter is useful for collecting additional information.

Ukrainian LAND has become bigger!

Two new centers appear on our map! The first is the project jivoy.dom (“Live house”). One of the main solutions used in the farm is the crater garden as a basis for changing the landscape on the slope. The hosts are pleased to welcome guests and already have extensive experience in dealing with foreign volunteers from different countries.

The second one is  Марсик Лили - детский пермакультурный клуб (Marcik Lili - children's permaculture club) located in Montenegro! The Permaculture Children's Club was established in 2018 with the purpose of teaching and demonstrating the potential of permaculture to children and adults. A greenhouse and 1200m2 of warm beds of Rozum/ Owsinsky were installed, where children and adults grow over 120 species of greens and vegetables without any chemical and biological effects.
