Mission and Objectives

Mission statement 

PermacultureWest – Permaculture Association of Western Australia (PAWA) – is the state support group for a decentralised collection of local permaculture groups. We encourage local groups to cooperate and help them to learn self-organising skills. Our intent is to build local and regional resilience through permaculture promotion, design and doings.


The objectives of PAWA shall be to encourage the development of all forms of Permaculture in Western Australia by:

  • promoting the design and construction of Permaculture systems,
  • promoting the rehabilitation of degraded land areas,
  • promoting the protection and enhancement of local ecosystems,
  • providing opportunities for interested people to meet,
  • disseminating information and resources,
  • seeking contact with any other related groups,
  • seeking income to sustain the above objectives.

These objectives are in our Constitution.
