Earth care, people care, fair share
Introducing the 2021 Pip Permie Awards!
Nominations are open for the 2021 Pip Permie Awards which recognise the individuals and organisations working tirelessly to create positive change.
Have you discovered an inspiring talent in your community?
As Australia’s leading permaculture title, Pip will reward the businesses, people and projects who best demonstrate permaculture’s three key ethics of earth care, people care and fair share.
Submit your nominations to recognise business, projects, and people in your community who demonstrate these values.
What are the requirements for nominations?
To be eligible to win the Pip awards, nominees must clearly display the 3 permaculture ethics in their work.
The 3 permaculture ethics are earth care, people care, and fair share. Within permaculture, Earth care is demonstrated by the idea that we must take care of the Earth before we take care of ourselves. People care is demonstrated by the idea that we care for the needs of others and not just our own. Fair share is demonstrated by the idea that we must use what we have been given wisely and with care.
There are three coveted awards up for grabs this year;
