What We’ll Do

Are you intrigued by the Permaculture Ethics and Principles and want to know a little more about how they can be used in practical ways at home and in our community (and not just in our gardens)?

Perhaps you’ve been motivated by the many new challenges of 2020-21 to find practical solutions and fresh possibilities to enhance well-being (for ourselves, our families, our communities and our planet).

Debbie will lead us to consider the 3 Permaculture Ethics (Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share) that form the foundations of the permaculture design system and guide our everyday actions and ethical decision-making.

She will integrate practical activities, discussions, story-telling and case examples as we learn about David Holmgren’s 12 Permaculture Design Principles and how these can be used to create individual and collective resilience in our lives.

You will leave with some ideas and actions you can apply in your own unique situation, and perhaps feeling challenged and inspired to learn more.
