Fambidzanai Permaculture Centre (FPC) is registered under the Zimbabwe Institute of Permaculture (ZIP) as a local Private Voluntary Organisation (PVO number 12/92). It is governed by a board of trustees.

Fambidzanai works towards achieving a food secure Zimbabwe that depends on sustainable land-based food systems (permaculture). The organisation has pivotally facilitated the inception of four other new organisations chasing the similar cause. The Natural Farming Network (NFN), the Schools and Colleges of Permaculture (SCOPE) programme, the Participatory Ecological Land Use Management (PELUM) and the African Farmer Organic Research and Training (AfFOREST) organisations, all owe their being to Fambidzanai.  The exclusively permaculture-based institution is undoubtedly one of the oldest home-grown organisations fostering sustainable land use management.

Our activities thrive on skills training in sustainable agricultural methodologies. The trainings are supplemented by practical demonstrations illuminating the ecological and economic viability of permaculture at the station. Creating, enhancing and facilitating market opportunities for farmers’ produce remains a key mandate of the organisation.

Fambidzanai currently affiliated to Bindura University of Science Education (BUSE) in an Agroecology school programme. The programme is aimed at expanding agricultural extension workers’ capacity to bring custom made solutions that sustainably mend and revive agricultural production in Zimbabwe.



We envisage prosperous; self-sustainable; food-secure and healthy communities, practising environmentally friendly Agroecology systems.


To train and demonstrate relevant skills and knowledge to restore people’s confidence in their ability to produce off land while still working creatively in harmony with nature and continuing to learn from each other.


In the quest to realize its vision and accomplish the mission FPC is guided by the following core values:


  • People centered development,
  • Environmental stewardship,
  • Human Gender sensitive development
  • Transparency
  • Accountability
  • Commitment to action results and impact.
  • Professionalism
  • Integrity.



FPC is run by a Board of Trustees which is made up of Permaculture enthusiasts that seek to enhance the cause of FPC with some professional zeal.
