About the network
The Permaculture Training and Demonstration Centers Network was established in January 2017 at the Second Permaculture convergence and developed with the assistance of volunteers and with the support of the International Visegrad Fund. It is part of the European and Visegrad LAND (Permaculture Learning and Demonstration Network) and the iLAND World Network. In the Permaculture Centers you will find numerous opportunities for study (courses, excursions and volunteering), buying organic products, finding experts and exchanging seeds.
Permaculture Center is a household or a farm that functions according to the ethical principles of permaculture (care for the earth, care for people, fair share), designed in accordance with the principles of permaculture design (each element has several functions, each function is performed by several elements, the use of natural flows and cycles, development and use of boundary effects, etc.), and its main purpose is to share the experience and knowledge of permaculture.
