the aimto promote sustainable and self-sufficient agriculture. The role of the permaculture consultant will be to
(1) assess, (2) develop and (3) implement a permaculture design suitable for Akobo and tra in 30 Community
Based Facilitators (CBFs) as well as 8 staff in the ACTED Food Security & Livelihoods team on the principles and
practical application of permaculture.
Both the CBFs and ACTED staff will then train the remaining APFS members on the permaculture design and will
regularly monitor the works at the perma-gardens. Each perma-garden will be provided with tree seedlings, tree
seeds and tools (hoes, rakes, etc.) to support the establishment and maintenance of the gardens. As ACTED
adopts a community-based, participatory approach through its programming, it is expected that the APFS
members will disseminate information about the positive consequences of permaculture and replicate similar
designs in their own private gardens.
