Permatopia – Self sufficient ecovillage in rural Denmark

Introduction

Permatopia is an ecovillage located in Denmark. Permatopia was established 2013 and has 100 living units. Work on becoming self-sufficient was already underway when Regen Farmer met up with Permatopia in early 2019. Based on the initial meeting it was established that approximately 5 ha of the land did not currently have any overall plan or direction. Regen Farmer took on the task to design these 5 ha integrating appropriate food production, recreation, biodiversity and environment.
