Project Updates


Our team member, Stella Nyambura Mbau, created a new website for 2020 YIPP winner Ola Tom – Permayouth Kitgum – to help him continue growing his work and reaching more people within his community.

Abundant Earth Foundation is partnering with Lush Spring Prize, Lush Prize, and Permaculture Magazine for our 2021 Youth in Permaculture Prize!

Real-world application of Permaculture Ethics and Principles will be considered in the evaluation of the applicants. Care for the Planet, People, and the Future is the Ethics and foundation of permaculture.

An international panel of young judges chooses projects based on their impact on the environment, providing food, offering solutions to economic or social problems, or other means of creating a better future.


In its third year, the Youth in Permaculture Prize of £10,000 was available to youth 25-years-old and under. The main award was £5,000, with two runners up winning £2,500.  Permaculture Magazine was delighted to bring the Youth in Permaculture Prize in-house for 2020.


In 2018 and 2019, the award was organized and hosted by Abundant Earth Foundation.
