Welcome to the - Permaponics Application Course (P.A.C.) | Permaculture Thailand

Welcome to the Rak Tamachat

Permaponics Application Course (PAC)


The Rak Tamachat Education Team has worked hard to design our Permaponics Applications Course (PAC) to bring together all the

Key Disciplines

of Permaponincs under one “Amazing  Hands on Course“.


We are ready to teach you the skills to create an organic food production system which is adaptable to both small and large scale applications.

The wealth of knowledge that Rak Tamachat gives you will ENABLE you to start on a new path with Permaponics, and the rest of your HEALTHY LIVING AND LIFE!


What is Permaponics


Permaponics is based upon the principle of using “Living Soil as the growing medium”  (as opposed to synthetic materials)  in an automated and controlled manner with Integrated Nutrient Cycling.

The source of the water for the Permaponic systems is from a “Flow-through Automatic Watering System (FAWS)” which pumps water from a pond in a broad scale system and or a fish tank in an urban setting.

Permaponics creates a “Total Integrated Nutrient Cycling System (TINCS)”. This means that all of the nutrients needed to provide for a healthy Soil Food Web and Healthy Plants are designed for and integrated into a closed loop nutrient cycling system , which assures we are eating “Certified Organic Nutritionally Dense Food“.

Permaponics utilizes the “Soil Food Web” to assure that our food production system has all of the nutrients needed by not only the plants but for the humans that consume them as well.


Permaponics is based upon the belief that in order to assure that all the required nutrients are present in our foods we have to utilize the “Soil Food Web” to assure that the nutrients are bio available in an organic and water soluble manor.

Permaponics acknowledges that a hydroponic system could be built that would provide the required nutrients, but that the nutrients are made available in a synthetic manner and thus not organic, ie: they do not use “Living Soil“.

Also there may be trace / micro nutrients that the hydroponic system would not provide for.

Permaponics believe the only way to assure that the “Total Integrated Nutrient Cycle” is assured is to use “Living Soil” and the “Soil Food Web” to provide the nutrients to our plants in an organic manner.

Meet Your Educator



Beau is the Founder of Rak Tamachat and the Inventor of Permaponics as practiced at Rak Tamachat.

He is passionate about growing and making the production of Healthy Nutritious Foods accessible to all, and believes that sharing Permaponics is the best way of doing just that. As such he has not tried patenting or registering what he believes has been practiced by civilizations for millennia. One only has to look to Chanapas to see the roots of Permaponics. 




Permaponics Applications Course Syllabus

The four day Permaponics Course consists of four morning practical sessions of Hands on Experiential Learning (3hrs from 8:00 – 11:00am). The afternoons are lectures on the  theory and strategies of Permaponics (3hrs from 2:00 – 5:00pm). Each student will build their own fully operational “Active” Permaponics System.


Permaponics Applications


Permaponics lends itself to a myriad of applications. The wide scope of it’s use to both grow “Nutritional Dense Food” and also provide for recreation (Natural Swimming Pools) and beauty (Aesthetic landscaping).

Permaponics allows a family to grow their own foods in the comfort of their homes be it in a urban or rural setting. The systems provides the ability to grow fish, vegetables and larger plants like bell peppers.

The secret of the success of Permaponics is based on its use of “Living Soil” and “Total Integrated Nutrient Cycling Systems (TINCS), as aposed to only using fish nutrient (Aquaponics) or synthetic N.P.K. fertilizer (Hydroponics).

This is the reason that the Permaponics can be “Certified Organic” we use Living Soils and create our nutrients with nutrient cycling systems, such as Vermiculture, Composting, Composting Teas, and Biochars.

Permaponic enthusiast believe that to have a Nutrient Dense Food the nutrient must be present in the growing media. We believe that the only way to assure the complete Nutrient Profile including the Macro and Micro Nutrients to to use the “Soil Food Web” and “Nutrient Cycling Systems” based on the “Five Kingdoms” of nature and how nature moves cycles nutrients.

If you only put N.P.K. in your systems, then you are only eating N.P.K.!
