Teaching truly sustainable practices to affect world change

The Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast Inc. was founded to educate and train people in Permaculture, Sustainability and Self Reliance and to promote permanent sustainable practices.
It adheres to the 3 Permaculture Ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share.
As such it provides education and training in Permaculture, Sustainability & Self Reliance and advisory services for sustainable environmental development (Earth Care). It also promotes Music & the Arts and community (People Care).
It aims to provide scholarships and free services (Fair Share) by raising money through running courses, training, workshops and events and other fundraising activities. In turn these activities raise awareness in participants of the lack of sustainable practices, thus encouraging more Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share.
PRI-SC also provides a learning space and demonstration site for people to learn these skills at the Kendall Permaculture Farm in the Noosa Hinterland on the Sunshine Coast in Australia.
