The biennial Pip Permie Awards are now open for 2020!
There are two Pip Permie awards:
The Best Permie Project Award is open to projects which are current, create positive change and demonstrate the permaculture ethics of earth care, people care and fair share.
The Permie of the Year Award is for a permaculture practitioner working to create positive change in the world. They need to demonstrate the permaculture ethics of earth care, people care and fair share in their work.
The Best Permie Project will be awarded $250, with the Permie of the Year receiving a lifetime subscription to Pip Magazine.
To nominate a project or person complete the online form.
