mixed schools in Powys, Wales have been designated with our Logo
in 2003 by the Primrose Earth Awareness Trust, whose Director,
Dr Paul Benham, is keen on enabling children to help design their
school gardens on Permacultural Principles.
Paul has found that it
makes them eager to plant and build (as these involve as much diversity
as possible) fruit bushes and trees, useful herbs, vegetables and
flowers, arranged curvaceously seats and living arches to hide in,
pools and straw bale play houses. It is a great joy to them to see
their gardens evolving and growing, and then to use their produce
for food and cures.

bushes have been carefully nurtured out of a formerly barren rocky
hill overlooking the great Lake Rajsamand.
Jeffrey, our Founder,
has devised a curriculum of courses ranging from the spiritual to
the very practical, subsidised by D.F.I.D. to enable Rajasthani
villagers to attend free of charge.
Self-help Village Economics,
the first Course, has a wide range of ways that villagers can help
themselves to overcome poverty e.g. by building linear biogas plants
to extract methane for the generation of electricity from dungs,
grasses and vegetable peelings.
State Grants are available
for these, as well as 80% cost of solar box-cookers and water heaters.
The Courses also cover other topics such as marketing coops, permacultural
gardening, woodland care.
