    About SARI

    Sustainable Agriculture Research Institute

    SARI is a small, non-government, non-profit organisation dedicated to working toward sustainable human existence. (Established in 1982).

    We are based on a 30 hectare property south of Nannup in the south-west of Western Australia.

    One of our projects is establishing a gene-pool of useful species relevant to our climatic conditions. We are having successes with plants from the Mediterranean regions, the temperate regions and the highland tropics.

    As a part of that process we began accumulating information on useful plants. We have now published several books on useful plants and are working on others.

    We teach Permaculture courses here and away.
