A Certified Course in Permaculture Design.
* Begins February 6, 2014 *
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture = “Permanently Sustainable Culture”
“A design science that uses natural systems as the model for creating productive systems with resilience, diversity and stability of natural ecosystems”
A paradigm embracing a biognostic worldview, creating ecologically sustainable human environments, practicing ways of living in harmony and deep connection with the diversity and abundance of life on the planet.
It is a philosophy of working with, as opposed to against nature, using thoughtful observation and skillful means to utilize and mange natural resources, animals and plants to generate a highly productive system that benefits the whole, as opposed to short term gain single product system.
Why embrace Permaculture?
Permaculture is a Revolution disguised as Organic Farming.
”Time and again Biointensive organic food production has been proven to generate as much as five times more than modern industrial agriculture, a system which is dependent on large fossil fuel inputs.” Vandana Shiva
“What permaculturists are doing is the most important activity that any group is doing on the planet. We don’t know what the details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options. We need people experimenting in all kinds of ways and permaculturists are one of the critical groups that are doing that.” David Suzuki
“Be the Change that you want to see in the World”, Gandhi
