The Practical Permaculture Institute Zanzibar (PPIZ) began in October 2015 and follows a practical hands-on approach to teaching permaculture skills. Most of its courses are taught in Kiswahili and are held at its demonstration farm. It’s courses include a monthly Permaculture Design Course, practical workshops on Composting & Natural Pesticides, specialized courses on Beekeeping, Moringa and Food Forests. It also hosts visits for school classes, NGO’s and a teacher’s program.
In August 2016 it started a program that targets out of school youths to be trained in Permaculture skills through a four month long program, getting them into green jobs afterwards.
