Permaculture Transformation of Northern Sumatra

This event is hosted by The Orangutan Project and the Permaculture Association of South Australia. Your ticket price includes delicious vegan canapes from the Foodprint Experience.

Join us to hear how a small Indonesian NGO, the Orangutan Information Centre, is transforming northern Sumatra. Using permaculture design principles, they are helping local farmers to stop logging the precious Leuser ecosystem, which is the last place on earth where orangutans, elephants, tigers, rhinos and sun bears still roam freely together. 

This is a unique opportunity to hear from award-winning conservationist, Panut Hadisiswoyo, Founding Director of the Orangutan Information Centre, and Nayla Azmi, Communications Officer, about the permaculture centres they are ‘seeding’ across northern Sumatra. Find out about new opportunities to travel to Sumatra to volunteer with the Orangutan Information Centre.

Lachlan McKenzie, co-author of The Tropical Permaculture Guidebook, will join Panut and Nayla for a special Q&A Panel. This is your chance to ask our guests about tropical permaculture and the ways permaculture can save orangutans, other species, and the rainforests they rely on.

You will leave inspired, encouraged and refreshed. Lachlan’s book, The Tropical Permaculture Guidebook, co-authored by Ego Lemos, will also be available for purchase.
