Farmer's Resource Centre for Permaculture
Information plays an important part in the wider permaculture learning process. Farmers and other agricultural workers need to understand the context of their work, follow new approaches, undertake new responsibilities, improve their practice and remind them of basic concepts.
Learning takes place not only at workshops or on training courses, but also through discussions with colleagues, practical experience, consulting books, and audiovisual materials.
Our Resource center supports a wide range of learning activities by making information available. By helping farmers learn about permaculture, they are playing a valuable part in redesigning the farming practices of our nation.
Our center acts as a farmer to farmer knowledge exchange platform, serves as a farmer field school, links farmers to productive markets, trains farmers on making and usage of natural farming products, and as well demonstrates basic permaculture practices to farmers using model farming projects including banana farming, poultry rearing, mushroom farming, rain water harvesting, grey water recycling, fruit tree farming, agroforestry and sugarcane farming.
