What we do
We train businesses, governments, communities and the private sector to use permaculture principles for food and water security.
Edge5 specialises in working in the developing world, guiding people towards a sustainable existence without hunger.
How we do it
Provide training and support to people who want to use permaculture to set up a sustainable existence.
What is Permaculture
Permaculture is an integrated design system that combines the ecological processes of land, plants, animals and climate into highly functional and productive systems that lead to strong, healthy, stable communities.
The overarching aim of permaculture is to build landscape resilience to handle the increasing environmental challenges from climate change and population growth. It starts at the back door with a kitchen garden, spreading out to a food forest. It then unfolds to larger scale strategies such as agroecogly, water harvesting, energy, natural building, forestry, waste management, animal systems, aquaculture and livelihood generation.
Building strong and stable communities
OUR PRIMARY AREAS OF FOCUS FALL INTO FIVE BROAD CATEGORIES:
“Design is a system of assembling conceptual, material, and strategic components in a pattern which functions to benefit life in all its forms”.
Through ecological design, together we can bring back nature and secure local food supply lines. Edge5 offers design solution anywhere in the world, for clients, communities in urban, rural and communities in between.
Edge5 provides advice to businesses, governments, communities and individuals. From the back door to the board room, we are here to help you achieve sustainable transformation. Whether it’s an urban backyard to rural farms or a village in the developing world, Edge5 can bring over 25 years’ experience to the team.
We offer a range of training programs from a few hours to 12 days.
Our courses have been delivered throughout the world and teach methods to establish healthy, sustainable gardens that are climate resilient.
Finding food security solutions is a global priority for community development. At Edge5 we are experienced in working with corporate and donor agencies to increase food security and decrease aid dependency. We’re skilled at using international sustainability reporting guidelines.
Global population growth, farming and urbanisation are putting pressure on communities to clear forests creating a decline in precious habitats.
Edge5 training and community development programs teach people to design productive environments, restore ecosystems, and sustainably maintain landscapes. Working with not against nature.
