In West Sumatera, we freely distribute permaculture guideline books to organic farming facilitators.The organic farming movement in West Sumatera, joined in Gelanggang Alam Petani Organik (GAPO) is a huge movement with thousands member in West Sumatera. Through this movement we introduce permaculture to farmers to supplement their traditional practices.
In Aceh, these books have become the guidelines for tsunami-affected communities in 2004, in doing the recovery in economic, environmental and social order. These guidelines facilitate the local communities in implementing permaculture techniques in their territories. IDEP Foundation has established permaculture education in Aceh, the GreenHand Field School, established in 2005 to 2009 and is now a Aceh Permaculture Foundation (YPA).
In Bali, the permaculture guidelines have become a so called 'holy book' for IDEP Foundation, used in every community outreach or training program.
