Permaculture Paradise Institute (PPI) is a local non-profit demonstration and training center that promotes household-level permaculture systems in Malawi, located in Langa village Mchinji district. The PPI provides low-cost social economic and ecologically-sound training to local farmers, entrepreneurs, non-governmental organizations as well as government.
