Our degraded landscapes are a reflection of degraded social systems, in fact, there is no seperation. If we are to truly repair and regenerate our planet Earth, we must start remembering ourselves as part of Ecology.
To do this, we must first start to look at our own beliefs, ideas, thought patterns and actions. Permaculture teaches that everything is connected, and that means that each one of us makes ripples. If we are conscious, aware, present, and willing to accept feedback, we can in turn create the world we wish to live in through ourselves.
Social Permaculture provides solutions for individuals, groups, communities and organizations. It offers tools for change, delving into areas that are often not spoken about in our society.
Many Land-based systems fail due to social fabrics being frayed or torn, and many people are not given the tools to mend them.
In this course we will explore the patterns that are contributing to the degradation of our own wellbeing and there-fore that of our planet.
We will discover personal empowerment through a range of exercises that enable us to design more effiecient and effective social systems.
Permaculture is a design science, and this way of systems thinking can be applied in all facets of life, including personal patterns and lifestyle choices.
If you would like to take full responsiblity for your survival and wellbeing, it begins here.
