Permaculture Research

Research is one of the five key areas of the Association's work. All aspects of the Association's research share two key aims; building a strong evidence base for permaculture and improving permaculture practice.


Our aim is to fulfil these aims through achieving seven results:

  • Creating permaculture research protocols
  • Engaging more people in permaculture research
  • Enabling more people to get access to permaculture research
  • Engaging more students and research interns
  • Building an international research network
  • Increasing links with universities, other academic institutions and policy makers
  • Conducting high quality research projects
