What We Do

Philippine Permaculture Association (PPA) aims to create a platform for mutual exchanges of Permaculture knowledge

School of Life

The School of Life concept is not a physical space but it is comprised of courses & trainings creating local platforms to share the skills that we need to meet our basic needs. From crafting your own house, producing your own food, making your own musical instruments, or brewing your own medicine. It builds up on the idea of life-long learning from nature, interactions and indigenous wisdom. Education is found not only in formal schools.

Permaculture Learning Resource Center

Permaculture Learning Resource Centers (PLRCs) are hubs that offers training and demonstration of Permaculture practices. PLRCs are results of collaboration with cooperatives, supported by local government.

Shaping the Landscape Cooperatively

PPA acknowledge how our collective efforts shape the ecological landscape. It partners with cooperatives to initiate Permaculture-based enterprises that has working environments where intrinsic life skills thrive from sharing knowledge with each other alongside securing means of production that is gentle to the nature.

Curriculum Integration

PPA partners with educational institutions in enhancing fields of study that focuses on life using the Permaculture framework. Indeed Permaculture is interwoven in different facets. The collaborations are being energize by the creativity of the youth.

Regeneration of Paradise

Have you heard of greening the desert? Maybe note needed in the Philippines. Unfortunately, despite its lush tropical rainforest ecosystem, there are a number of spaces that are turning into deserts due to overexploitation of its natural resources. For what? Ever wondered why the green color is association with money? Maybe because it came from trees and all the other forms of life sacrificed to acquire it.

But there it does not end there. We have to trust that nature has the capacity and power to rehabilitated itself of course with a kind human intervention. Share the story Ale-ale Ecological Park, and discover how a barren and almost deserted 3.9 hectares of land gained its life back and regenerated into a paradise.

Shaping the Landscape Cooperatively

Riparian Ecosystems: Cagayan River

Riparian Ecosystem is where the aquatic ecosystems and terrestrial ecosystem meet. It is teeming with different life forms celebrating the abundance of water. It also acts as safety nets from the rise of water during typhoon seasons. PPA was able to take on projects along the Cagayan River and coastal area in Isabela highlighting design of BIO-DIVERSITY in the riparian ecosystem.

Organic Highway Concept

Organic Highway aims to strengthen local markets by strengthening and enhancing local production of organic produce. It also works towards ethical and informed consumption by creating platforms for exchanges of information and products made from organic materials using traditional techniques

Permaculture Based Business Model

Permaculture-based enterprise follows a 4-P Process:
– Protection
– Production
– Processing
– Promotion
Protection of the welfare of people and the environment is the starting and ending point in these enterprises. Banking on and securing bio-diversity is the core of its ethos.

Why PGS than Organic Certification?

Participatory Guarantee System is an integrative approach to ensure the safety of our food production. It involves various stakeholders from different facets of life such as farmers, consumers, organic practitioners and advocates.

In 2017, PPA in cooperation with Isabela Permaculture Development Center (IPDC) and the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist of Province of Isabela jumpstarted PGS-Isabela.

Self-Sufficiency Through DIY

Gone had been the days when life skills are being harnessed to provide for people’s basic needs. Permaculture creates sustainability by taking back the power of creating something. Tapping into the talents that are instrinsically to creatively provide for ourselves, all we have to do is be informed and harness it!
