New P4R Booklet by Rosemary Morrow with Ruth Harvey Teaching Permaculture in Refugee Camps 

It is with pleasure that we, Permaculture For Refugees (P4R), bring you the latest booklet in our series on teaching permaculture in refugee situations. It is based on our first-hand experience of trialing permaculture courses in camps and settlements in 2019/20.

We hope that Teaching Permaculture to Refugees in Camps provides a comprehensive guide for teachers and NGOs planning, or already running, PDCs in refugee camps or settlements. These situations are vastly different from teaching ‘at home’ in one language and one culture to participants with relatively secure futures.

This booklet outlines the steps involved in preparing for such a teaching project:

  • it gives guidance on what to anticipate and what to do at different stages
  • It notes the specific skills, awareness and adaptability required.
  • It provides tools for engaging people from diverse backgrounds for reflection, evaluation and reporting.

Please share widely to everyone who might benefit from it.

This booklet is equally valuable for anyone teaching in development situations.  We also think that teachers who love teaching will find it engaging.

We hope to have the final booklet, Outcomes from Teaching Permaculture in Refugee Settlements out early next year.

Thank you so much for your interest, support and on-going care for refugees and asylum seekers everywhere.

Instead of being places of isolation and need, camps can become ecovillages, where refugees’ human and creative potential is realized, so that, if they depart, the land will be restored through permaculture, and the departing refugees will take away with them transferable skills and positive experiences of community and learning.

P4R has continued to work with refugees in different situations, consolidating our research and reaching out to people working with refugees and adding to our knowledge of where permaculture is engaged and where it might engage in the future.
