What is it?

The “Children in Permaculture” group was initiated during the EPT meeting in Slovenia in 2012. It’s a group that would like to see more children involved in Permaculture. It aims for inclusion. This group started an email group and kept in touch in between the meetings of the EPT. They were able to gather up in Portugal, UK and now in Bulgaria.

The email group lost its energy, however wanted to continue. They would like to still keep in touch with many people who have been working with children, who have experience with children and Permaculture and/or have teacher training experience.  There are also experienced parents  so “Children in Permaculture” set out to bring resources together and not really “re-invent” the wheel.

We are a group of enthusiasts who want to create an European Children Permaculture Network.

What’s the next step?

Applying for a strategic partnership (3 years) through Erasmus+. We need to get “seed money” to kick start a project. We are gathering people who are interested in this project. We are also getting core partners (four or five) organised to september 2014 and start running the funding circle.

  1. Hi there,

    I’m excited to read about ‘Children in Permaculture’ as we have just formed a new circle here in Germany, too, and aim to make one of our yearly gatherings in May 2015 a first ‘experiential field’ with this focus! I’d be happy to contribute on the European level and also like the idea of applying for funding, quite experienced with that in general – mind you I have just given birth to our second child Flora and our little boy Rubin is only 1.5 years, so my time will be very limited and I’m probably not able to mastermind anything on a reliable basis. Keep in touch anyways and let me know what’s going on! best wishes, Rike

    1. Hi Ulrike,

      Thank you for sharing your interest as well as intentions for May 2015 with us! We would be glad to know about your experiences in Germany as well as it does sound exciting. We understand that you may not be available to fully commit to the funding process of the project yet we appreciate any possible contribution, support and exchange in the future. Please feel free to fill in the form so we can have your contact information and keep in touch. Best of wishes and congratulations on your second child! Gaye
