What the heck is permaculture anyway??
At it’s core, is ethics. An ethical science.
We study and apply natural patterns.
To help guide our decision making towards appropriate application of patterns, PC uses principles.
The principles are not fixed at 12, or 5, or whatever number, but instead are distilled from observing natural systems.
We can borrow principles from Keyline Design, Zero Emission Research Institute, Sepp Holzer, Masanoba Fukuoka, Bill Mollison, Elaine Ingham, etc.
But how they apply to our design work, that is what matters. And each of us, is a designer.
“Obtain a Yield”
“Use Edges and Value the Margins”
These are not platitudes, but rather speak to the heart of how Nature works, and therefore, how we should work too.
Join us in a group conversation based around Ethics and Principles. Suggested donation $10.00 or trade equivalent (seed, food, drink, etc)
Happy New Year!
