Originally derived from the words permanent culture, ‘permaculture’ has gone beyond its roots in looking at strategies to create a sustainable food growing method to become a worldwide movement encompassing all aspects of how we as human beings can live harmoniously in relation to our earth and our finite resources – a permanent culture.

Permaculture gardens at Amisewaka will perform the dual purpose of landscaping as well as providing the produce used at the restaurantby teachers and students for the cooking classes.

This holistic approach will not only provide skills but also raise the awareness of the students and their respective communities of the importance of creating a sustainable agricultural system. Permaculture has become quite popular in Bali, and our center already boasts an array of plants and walkways that provide for much of the plant-based meals at the center.

Students will be given the opportunity to learn:

  • How to start plants from seedlings in our nursery
  • How to make organic compost on-site
  • How to make a permaculture “wicking bed”
  • How to plant and harvest responsibly
  • Teamwork is the best work
