Thriving communities - The Permaculture Association

United Kingdom

Thinking differently has led to The Permaculture Association's project Thriving Communities.

The Permaculture Association has been supporting permaculture practitioners and teachers to create thriving communities across Britain for over 30 years. In 2016 we launched the Thriving Communities project to ensure that permaculture is reaching those in the greatest need.

Global challenges including climate change, war and natural disasters mean that more people than ever are being forced to flee from their homes and seek sanctuary elsewhere.

People feel powerless and angry with limited options for changing their own future.

For many years, it has been shown that permaculture is able to make a huge difference to people’s lives, no matter what their background or their circumstances.


Thriving Communities is about learning from many existing projects and finding ways to support much more of this to happen all over Britain.
