Permaculture For Regional Planning
Ecological Models of Economic Development
While permaculture design practices are typically applied to creating productive homes and agricultural land, permaculture design ethics and principles, when applied at the broader scales of community, regional, and urban planning, have a great impact on creating a human environment with ecological integrity.
Starting with a clear understanding of the mistakes and challenges inherent in our present economy – including petroleum dependence and extreme weather -- this course focuses on how to redirect our society and its infrastructure back into alignment with the earth’s natural cycles, one region at a time.
Brooklyn Permaculture Meetup
Every Third Friday at The Commons
$5 Suggested donation - no one turned away!
Permaculture is a whole systems design science that is positively changing the way people think and interact with Earth. Turn problems into solutions by joining us in the discussion, design and implementation of projects in and around Brooklyn and the surrounding region. We are looking to create an active group of motivated beings that want to contribute to all the positive change that is happening in our region and the world. This Meetup will be lead by Andrew Faust and occasional visiting friends. Andrew is director at Center for Bioregional Living which since 2007 has been training permaculture designers in NYC and starting June 1st 2012 at their rural campus in Ellenville, NY. A certificate in Permaculture Design is very helpful but not necessary. Click HERE to join Brooklyn Permaculture Meetup.
