Our work and our process

When planning, developing, and running our previous educational projects, our process has been as below.

This project cycle may serve as a guide for others wishing to develop such teaching projects.


We are, however, in the process of adapting our model to changing times.

Our Covid-19 response has been to pause face-to-face teaching overseas, and to develop and collate refugee-friendly permaculture teaching resources that address the particular needs and limitations of refugee settlements. They are designed to facilitate teaching, coaching and mentoring by host partners and others working in countries with limited resources.

All teaching materials, both digital and non-digital, are tailored to convey information in a way that is relevant, accessible, visual, and culturally sensitive.

We are also collecting resources in refugee languages such as Arabic, Dari, French and Rohingya as well as languages which are much lesser known.

In the pipeline we have:

                • curriculum outlines
                • teaching activities
                • slide presentations of lessons
                • printable materials such as booklets and posters with teachers notes
                • illustrated guides e.g. for story-telling through radio shows and videos
                • banners and photographs

We are open to receiving and pooling materials from other sources. All materials need to allow for easy translation, and will be tested and trialled before publication.

These resources will be available to anyone, by donation only.
