November 17: Permaculture – Designing for Abundance, Beauty, and Greater Resilience
Permaculture is a system of principles and practices for designing sustainable human settlements. Introduced in the 1970s as an alternative to the harmful and unsustainable methods of industrial agriculture, its applications go way beyond food production! With attention to nature’s solutions to design problems and careful observation of the patterns and energy flows in systems, a Permacultural approach helps us design our lives, homes, and organizations to be more self-sustaining, to require less effort and energy to maintain, and to give us more of what we want and need.
