The Global Permaculture Labor / Design Exchange. Version 1.0 by Willi Paul. Final Journal Entry for Urban Permaculture Institute Certificate Class, Summer 2011.
Concept? An Internet portal for community, shared ideas and contract work in Permaculture.
New PDC graduates and local citizens need jobs . Land owners need experienced consultants. Where is the system to balance these critical inputs and outs? As my Co-Instructor Kevin Bayuk says, we need to get entrepreneurial. Right!
The Exchange could potentially offer PDC Instructors and consultants project work and on-site, real-world permaculture training and income for permaculture groups, Boy/Girl Scouts, 4 H and neighborhood kids. Local to global, eh?
Members could pay a nominal fee and build their profile with experience, trainings, available tools, geographical zone, references, etc. This site potential advances the project database currently at Worldwide Permaculture Network by adding an economic engine.
The exchange could be assisted or promoted by the Guilds System (TBD).
