to the Permaculture Research Institute of Barbados
A Permaculture Research Institute (PRI): is a center for the demonstration and education of sustainability. They are internationally recognized centers set up to both demonstrate sound design in a specific region and climate of the world, and populate the local and global community with sustainable leaders and permaculture designers.
Our PRI, The Caribbean Permaculture Research Institute of Barbados, is a non-profit organization providing the demonstration and education of permaculture in partnership with the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Walkers Reserve, WIRRED (Walkers Institute for Regererative Research Education and Design) and Slow Food Barbados. Through these, and other NGO and CSO private-public partnerships we strive to make a difference.
Together we educate and empower our students to:
Grow food, repair land and build community
Find and create a livelihood based on meeting one’s own needs, and helping others meet their needs
Create low maintenance, holistic and functional systems to feed, house and provide income
