The Amuura Permculture Garden in Sri Lanka was created to be a model garden for permaculture farming, food sovereignty, self-sustainability. It is to encourage small farmers from the surrounding area and (foreign) visitors to also start their own gardens. We want all people being more independent from the food industry and to help rebuild a healthy nature.
For the building of Amuura Permaculture Garden, we used traditionall, self-made clay bricks and natural clay plaster. These keep the house cool inside and absorbs humidity, so that the fresh harvested cinnamon can dry more easily.
We invite everyone to visit our 1 ha garden, it offers the perfect opportunity to experience Sri Lanka's back country and organic gardening. To learn and see everything about cinnamon production and permanent agriculture in a guided garden tour. We gladly share our knowledge and passion for sustainable living and let you in to some of our secrets of permaculture.
