Children in Permaculture (CiP) began as an Erasmus+ project in which seven European organisations worked together to improve the education of children in formal, informal and non-formal settings through the development of resources such as a curriculum, session plans, films and other resources. These resources have been designed to enable kindergarten and school teachers, permaculture practitioners, parents and other educators to engage in holistic, sustainable education with children based on permaculture ethics and principles.

History of the Children in Permaculture (CiP) project
Children in Permaculture was a 3-year project funded through Erasmus+ Key Action 2: School Education, September 2015-18. The partnership was across 5 countries: UK, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Italy. The lead partner was the Permaculture Association (Britain), and the other partner in the UK was Gatehouse School. This international exchange developed, tested, adapted and implemented practices in permaculture education with children.
