Permaculture Training Center in Burkina-Faso

Inspiring project promoting permaculture in Burkina Faso. The aim of this project is not only to support young permaculture farmers as they are setting up but also to participate in creating a place of healthy living in the area where the project is located.

An initiative of Permaculture Itinerante

Overview of the project

Permaculture is the development of crops, living places and agricultural and human systems that use ecological principles and traditional knowledge to recreate the diversity, the stability and the resilience of natural ecosystems.

The Permaculture Itinérante project aims to use permaculture as a means to form a solution concerning the re-organisation of degraded land, preservation of wildlife, diversity of natural ecosystems, educational courses, stability and resilience, the creation of a local and family economy and food abundance.

This initiative helps support young permaculture farmers with their farming and combat the rural exodus towards larger cities. Thanks to this, the project creates a healthy and balanced lifestyle in the area where the project is based.
