Join us in the Ecology Dimension of the ReGEN-Nations Program with an inspiring workshop on Permaculture, led by Morag Gamble.
In this workshop, we will explore what permaculture is, why it has spread around the world over the past 4 decades and why there is such growing interest and need for permacultural approaches in the world today. Essentially Permaculture is a way to design for one-planet living, for living lightly on the earth, for nurturing regenerative communities and culture. It is a way of seeing the world, observing natural and human systems, and creating healthy human habitats that nourish us, produce an abundance of food and reduce our footprint, regenerate degraded systems and leave space for nature’s diversity to thrive. We will explore together how to cultivate a permaculture mind, and how to apply it in your life and community positively and proactively – how to be a permaculture [pr]activist. This will be an interactive session where we can explore how permaculture be woven into the projects you are working on – personally and collectively.
This course is recorded from the workshop on Wednesday – December 2nd, 2020.
