Permaculture for Refugees

Nurturing new relationships between people and places.

Permaculture for Refugees (P4R) is a global network of educators, practitioners, community leaders and networkers coming from diverse fields of work, with a common vision to disseminate permaculture knowledge widely to refugees, asylum seekers, forced migrants and IDPs.

Permaculture education is one of the most effective tools to help people feel empowered in refugee settings. With its learner centred approach, and immediate on-the-ground applications, it engages refugees directly and gives them a purpose.

There are many ways you can get involved with P4R, as a partner organisation, a community, a network or as an individual. P4R is committed to enabling participants in the network to collaborate and cross-pollinate, so we can work with and support refugees.
