    We are a team of four 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) Producing and marketing a community-building card game on endangered Malaysian animals. The card game IUCN backed and is in collaboration with the Malaysian Nature Society.

    (2) Children’s edible garden in the city. We teach communities to set up edible gardens and provide workshops to skill build around subsistence farming.

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