Permaculture offers a practical, solutions-based philosophy that invites us to take conscious strides towards whole-systems solutions to the problems we face in our lives and the world around us. We'll explore the ethics and design principles of permaculture and then look at how these insights can offer us a way to re-envision and re-engineer the water, food, building, and social systems that our modern culture relies on. Followed by questions and answers.
