Permaculture design certificate course - designing for change, September 8th - September 23rd 2012
Permaculture is the harmonious integration of landscape and people — providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.
The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather than against, nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless action; of looking at systems in all their functions, rather than asking only one yield of them; and allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions.
This 2 week intensive learning experience will deliver participants their Permaculture Design Certificates while exploring the ideas of Designing For Change. We acknowledge that change is upon us. Where it leads we do not know but a willingness to begin the transition and consciously design resilience into our lives will put us in good stead.
Facilitated by Bryan Innes & Joanna Pearsall
