Training

Fambidzanai Permaculture centre is a training center that was established in 1988. It is a registered Trading Trust private limited (No 87/18) that is governed by a board of trustees. The Zimbabwe Institute of Permaculture (Z.I.P.), a registered Social Welfare Organization (No WO 12/92) is responsible for the properties of Fambidzanai. Physically Fambidzanai is located 20 km from the Harare city centre along Lomagundi road.
The centre has fostered the creation of four other development institutions namely The Natural Farming network (NFN), the Schools and Colleges Permaculture (SCOPE), African Farmer Organic Research and Training (AfFOREST), and Participatory Ecological Land Use Management (PELUM). Since its inception, the centre has paved the path for food security through sustainable Land use Management. Our development intervention is characterized by skills training; demonstrations, participatory rural appraisal, and creating marketing opportunities for organic produce. Our Vision is we envisage Prosperous, self-sustainable, food secure and healthy communities practicing environmental friendly permaculture systems and the mission is to teach 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.
