Permaculture is an holistic method of design leading to establishing a “permanent culture” guided by grounded ethics, principles and design practices. It considers the whole system at multiple levels of scale through the intelligent integration of social, economic, land, water, plants, and shelter sub-systems. Using Permaculture can lead to the design and implementation of self-sustaining, regenerative human systems that “do good” for both human kind AND the Earth.
Topics Include:
How to read the opportunities and needs of a landscape.
How to design for resilient catchment and water supply systems systems including ponds, swales, drip irrigation planning, keyline systems, and water catchment.
How and why to build soil, plan amendments, avoid erosion and produce good food.
How to manage animals in urban and rural environments.
How to make a food forest (design, management, implementation).
How to design for energy efficient homes and communities.
How to live better with less stuff.
How to design for sustainable small and large places (room, home, village, region).
What are the invisible structures that govern the relationships between the environment and economics and us.
How to communicate design ideas with hand graphics and models.
How to listen, speak and facilitate in community settings.
Horticultural techniques (propagation, grafting, efficient weeding and planting).
The practice, science and philosophy of Natural building (cob, earthen plaster).
and many more …
