Willie Smits: Village Based Permaculture Approaches in Indonesia

Online we have all seen videos of people doing small scale permaculture in their backyards or on small acreage. While these are often awesome examples of permaculture in action - how do you translate these projects to the large scale? How do you engage a whole community and work with government to make change using permaculture across a whole region?

In this video Willie Smits talks about his work on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi - an island with steep topography, overpopulation and with a unique/diverse local culture. Willie Smits explains how he was able to work with the people living on Sulawesi to address the problems of deforestation by promoting a permaculture inspired environmentally friendly agriculture production system. Through this system of agroforestry, Willie Smits created new and better jobs for the local people while reforesting the island promoting local plants and animals.

By working with the local communities and through the application of a joint planning module trust was built making this work possible. By working with a big farmers cooperative in north Sulawesi and building trust with the local community Willie Smits has created a potential blueprint for other communities to implement permaculture principles.

For only $10.00 you can access this presentation by Willie Smits to learn how to work with communities and build trust in order to better implement permaculture principles.
