Gaiacraft Permaculture Workbook | Earth Day 2013 Release

Gaiacraft Permaculture Workbook | Earth Day 2013 Release | Permaculture design | Scoop.it

Collected at trainings from some of the Masters and Maestras of Permaculture, these noedics share a number of foundational concepts from the permaculture paradigm. This is a sampler of the core permaculture curriculum which itself is sourced and innovated from a vast collection of traditional and modern understandings, techniques, directives, principles, strategies, technologies and permaculture design methods found globally in many conscious cultures. In the spirit of a genuine love for permaculture education and in gratitude to the World Community, this new learning tool is intended to help heal and empower our relationship with ourselves, the Earth and each other.

Permaculture Is the Silver-Green Bullet for the Middle East

Permaculture Is the Silver-Green Bullet for the Middle East | Permaculture design | Scoop.it

“Permaculture made total common sense to me,” insists Nadia Lawton, “it also fitted with my life ethics a a Muslim.” While the first part of Nadia’s statement may not be considered unique, her remark about Islam is. Permaculture is defined as the design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems that have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems. It basically looks at growing in a holistic framework which promotes sustainability, the conservation of resources and biodiversity.

When Orthodox Science Meets Permaculture Principles

When Orthodox Science Meets Permaculture Principles | Permaculture design | Scoop.it

Permaculture is a design/holistic/integrative science, whereas the mainstream/academic science is reductionist — that is, to understand how things work, scientists break a system and study the tiny parts.

 

Nevertheless, permaculture can benefit from reductionist science, to find relevant knowledge and new design ideas, but above all to gain some academic arguments to demonstrate the validity and legitimacy of its principles and techniques.

 

This is an article which shows some of the links I’ve found between scientific articles published in national and international journals, while searching facts and numbers to help me design my property. During the process, some ideas just popped, so I included them to make the article a “live performance” of the usefulness of lurking in the scientific jungle sometimes.

P3 Permaculture's curator insight, March 1, 2013 9:06 PM

when we speak of humanity, we must speak of those who demonstrate our greatest potential. Our capacity for change and resilience is based in diversity, and to define humanity and our nature by the actions of a small group that has the current control of the corrupt capitalist, military machine, would be a blind insight.  There are more to this world then the WTO IMF and the other guys, think of Ghandi, Vandana Shiva, Wangari Maathai, Bill Mollison, Rob Hopkins, 

 

We are a diversity of people from many backgrounds, The reason you dont like your job, go shopping , use substances like alcohol, coffee, nicotine  and so on is rooted in the fact that most of us, well to be frank the 99% are hungry for something, not something you can buy, not something that can be patented   Something rooted in our cultures, our communities, and our true nature. By the people for the people

 

we claim to be more civilized then our ancestors  but we have less time to make art, less time to dream about the stars of the depths of the ocean and less time to love, be loved & make love. What is so civilized about that.  The Transition Network is changing that! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8meWY0W40OA


We are in the turning of the tides wen we awake from this dream, many of you dont see it yet but I assure you there are hundreds of thousands of groups of individuals that are already weel on their way to a new way of living.  Where cooperation not competition guides our holistic development of our communities and our lives. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5L7XIjV4Jw


Join this global movement, share in the ancient knowledge of permaculture, holistic design and grow our future together. 


We at P3Permaculture.ca are working hard to create a demonstration site for urban, suburban and rural solutions to the challenges we face. 

Join in on our courses in Hudson, Quebecfor a suburban permaculture experience, based in positive , fun solutions to the chalenges.


or for a full immersion join us at Canarie farm or at Solomon Brook farm this summer for a intensive permaculture design certification.

Replanting hedgerows using permaculture design | Permaculture Magazine | Permaculture design | Scoop.it

Hedgelaying is an ancient and time-honoured skill, but what if hedgerow plants could be selected by applying permaculture thinking and techniques? The first hedge we tackled was predominantly 30-year-old unruly, and entirely sheep porous, hazel. After thinning and laying, the hedge is now stock proof; the hazel is rejuvenated and along its length are plums, apples, pears, cherries, mulberries, quinces and a couple of sweet chestnuts.

Shedding light on a permaculture farm: Review of “Bioshelter Market Garden” :: The Ethicurean: Chew the right thing. | Permaculture design | Scoop.it

Everything on the farm is open to critical review in light of permaculture design, from where to locate various gardens based on topography or microclimate to how buildings are used and powered. The central point for this permaculture farm, Frey states, is the bioshelter, “a greenhouse operated as an ecosystem.” He likens the bioshelter to a living cell that breathes and replenishes itself from its environment, producing food and wastes in the process. More than just a glassed-in hothouse, the bioshelter contains multiple microclimates and encourages ecological relationships between the plants and beneficial insects as well as chickens and humans.

How farms are using permaculture design to survive and prosper

How farms are using permaculture design to survive and prosper | Permaculture design | Scoop.it

The rise in fuel prices has seen greater awareness and a wider concern for what life will be like when the oil runs out. This has seen interest in less chemical dependant farming methods bringing permaculture to the forefront of discussion and debate.

 

A handful of farms in the UK have been using permaculture for many years as a systematic way of designing, developing and maintaining their various enterprises.

 

These early adopters, with the help of the UK's permaculture charity, the Permaculture Association, began designing and experimenting long before peak oil and climate change were widely recognised.

 

As these farms evolved, their original designs developed and morphed. Their evolution has created systems that have helped to inspire others creating a catalyst for change.
