  • Description

    Description

    We are a team of individuals passionate about sustainable living.

    Inspired by permaculture and Transition Towns, we teach skills and empower communities to implement their own projects. We run workshops, host community meetings and facilitate design and systems thinking to come up with solutions to local problems. We also design and build gardens and farms as well as programs e.g. recycling, advocacy.

    These are the projects that we are focusing on for the coming months:
    (1) Edible gardening workshops for primary school kids in Perlis and Terengganu
    (2) Community agriculture workshops for housing communities
    (3) Developing a card game on endangered local animals
    (4) Revamping our website

    Our office is based in Kuala Lumpur where work primarily with urban individuals and communities.
