Join as an Educator Member

Quality teachers are essential to the successful spread of Permaculture around the world. Whether you teach PDCs, introductory courses, deliver talks, or work with educational institutions, we want to support you to bring permaculture into people's lives and into communities and organisations. 

By becoming an educator member you can connect with a network of educators that can easily communicate, collaborate and support each other. You will gain access to a resource bank of materials to aid your teaching and be able to take part in regular sessions designed to support the continued development of your education skills and experience. 

This membership welcomes both less experienced teachers, who can be supported by senior tutors, and those with more experience who can help shape the future of permaculture education.

Those focusing on children in permaculture are also encouraged to join and engage in the ongoing efforts to get permaculture into the national curriculum. 

It’s easy to sign up - join the growing network of permaculture educators for just:

  • £7.50 per month for those without other memberships
  • £4.50 / £2.50 extra per month if you already have another membership type

Education membership includes all of the benefits of our standard membership including:

  • Promotion of your projects, courses and events on the Permaculture Association website
  • Monthly Network News and Permaculture Works Magazine

  • And supporting the great work we do as a charity! 

Join now and change your world.
