The Permaculture Magazine Prize launches in 2018 – £20,000 will be awarded to projects showing best practice in ecological, social and cultural design. Plus a Youth in Permaculture Prize – £5,000 for 25’s and under.

Permaculture magazine is launching the Permaculture Magazine Prize 2018 with a fund of £20,000. It will consist of one main award of £10,000 and four runners up of £2,500. The prize is open to any permaculture project in the world. There is also a £5,000 Youth in Permaculture Prize for people 25-years-old and under.

We want to specifically award money to permaculture projects that reach ordinary people and demonstrate best practice permaculture both in terms of ecological and socially / culturally innovative design. 

We are looking for a variety of permaculture projects that are:

* Regenerating damaged land

* Enhancing habitat and biodiversity

* Helping people to gain practical and community skills

Adding value to produce and developing local economies

Building community, creating social glue and greater economic resilience

Modelling new ways of cooperating and new cultural paradigms.

Projects can apply if they have been functioning for at least three years and have established their place within their community.

Please tell permaculture projects around the world about the prize.

We want to hear from you!
