I’m doing a Permaculture Design Certificate course this year and it’s been very informative and inspiring so far. For those not familiar with the idea:
“The word ‘permaculture’ comes from ‘permanent agriculture‘ and ‘permanent culture‘ – it is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature. Permanence is not about everything staying the same. Its about stability, about deepening soils and cleaner water, thriving communities in self-reliant regions, biodiverse agriculture and social justice, peace and abundance.”
We’ve learned to ID trees and how to create cohesive designs inspired by Nature. This is exactly what I needed to bring out as part of my ecological practice. Exciting!
