Case Study: Cambodia Permaculture Project

A portion of the project area, which in total covers an area of around 250 hectares in the Kampot Province of Cambodia.

I’ve had a very busy week, so have not had time to write any other posts this week. But I did want to share with you an exciting and large-scale project which I have been working on, and will be working a lot more on next month.

Eco- Resort, Restoration, Reclamation –

A Sustainable Future

The project scope broadly speaking covers three main areas:

  • The North valley – where an Eco Resort and Ecosystem Restoration Camp will be established. (The broad concept plan for which is shown in the image above.)
  • The South valley – Reclamation of Degraded Farmland and Sustainable Community Establishment.
  • Restoration and Rewilding of the Mountain Peaks surrounding and spreading out from these two key areas. Priority restoration areas are watersheds for the two main valley zones.

The core aim of the project is to achieve a balance between human need and environmental restoration, and to bring economic prosperity to local people, while also educating them about the importance of forest conservation and sustainable practices so that they can live in harmony with the natural world.

Wider goals involve the restoration of native forest cover, protection of key watersheds, and sustainable practice to meet a number of global sustainable development goals, sequester carbon and halt biodiversity losses.

This is a large, ongoing project. I will soon begin more detailed planting designs for this portion of the site.

If you are interested in discussing your own plans for an eco-resort, sustainable farm or ecosystem restoration project, please do get in touch.
