Permakultúra pre farmy je medzinárodná konferencia s medinárodnými prednášjúcimi pre skúsených i začínajúcich permakultúrnych farmárov, ktorej budú predchádzať exkurzie po farmách v 3 krajinách.

Poplatok za konferenciu: 20 EUR/deň, alebo 10 EUR/deň pri online účasti, zdarma pre prezentujúcich a pre 5 delegátov z každej krajiny Vyšehradskej dohody a Ukrajiny, ktorí sa chcú zúčastniť budovania siete permakultúrnych ukážkových fariem.

Ľudia so záujmom o permakultúru sa často pýtajú, či je permakultúra vhodný nástroj len pre malé rodinné záhrady, alebo aj pre väčšie poľnohospodárske projekty a produkčné farmy poskytujúce sebestačnosť svojim majiteľom a zdroj zdravého jedla pre celú mietnu komunitu. Táto konferencia vám dá komplexnú odpoveď na túto otázku - permakultúra to dokáže!

Účastníci získajú prehľad o globálnej situácii a perspektívach permakultúrneho farmárčenia, so zvláštnym zameraním na Strednú Európu a jej podmienky. Vypočujú si prezentácie úspešných permakultúrnych farmárov z Českej Republiky, Slovenska, Maďarska, Poľska a Ukrajiny. Permakultúrne farmy nie sú len víziou budúcnosti, je to realita!

Permaculture in Ukraine

NGO “Permaculture in Ukraine”, Ukraine

Our partnership was created in September 2016 to share the best experience of permaculture farming and support development of the permaculture education and demonstration networks in our countries. In March 2017 we received the grant from the International Visegrad Fund which allowed us to implement the project.

All countries in our region have economy with developed agriculture sector, traditionally big ratio of rural population managing small and medium sized farms. Industrial agriculture that rely on cultivation of monocrops over big land areas destroys traditional lifestyle in the Central and Eastern Europe that was based on cooperation of small producers, local food growing and marketing, and straightforward relationship between towns and surrounding countryside based on the trust, mutual support and interdependence. Contemporary farming which requires high initial investment in machinery and agrochemicals and needs less labor force leads to abandonment of traditionally rural regions, work emigration, aging, health and social problems. Contemporary agriculture depends on intensive management, relentless availability of scarce and nonrenewable resources, and generates massive, destructive ecosystem effects.

The mission of our organizations is support and promotion of environmentally friendly agriculture, green energy and energy efficient technologies, healthy lifestyle, protection of natural and cultural heritage and development of self-sufficient  communities using the instruments of permaculture (the culture, based on the principles of sustainable development) to solve actual environmental, economic and social problems. In particular, it is establishment and support of the small farms, stimulating the activity of the local communities, regional development through strengthening connection within the bioregions and creating production and economical cycles within the regions. Present project help us co create strong regional network of the permaculture demonstration farms. Initiated collaboration between the small-scale sustainable farmers and permaculture educator should trigger development of the comprehensive education program in agroecology for both permaculture organizations, vocational and higher institutions in the Visegrad region.

What is permaculture

Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered on simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. It is possible to create more resilient farms requiring less labour and resource input by establishing functional relationships between the elements. Permaculture farming is a noble occupation changing our land management from destructive to nature restoring, connecting farmers and citizens in the mutually supportive community.
