I don't have any hands on experience with permaculture, but I was able to briefly study it while at Sac State. To my understanding permaculture is sort of an extension to ecology yet applied in a environmental design kind of way. Understanding how different plants, bugs, and wildlife interact to create a harmonious ecological system. It's a sustainable design which, in my opinion, could be used to replace our current agricultural monoculture system. Well, anyway, I have a lot to learn and look forward to doing so!
I am looking to meet new people who share similar interests in the environment and sustainable practices of human beings. I also would like to learn more about permaculture and anything else involved.
Sustainable gardening and farming mostly. I wrote my thesis on agricultural subsidies in the United States and found our current system to be extremely wasteful and deeply corrupt. I am a firm believer we need to change our agricultural practices and adopt more sustainable ways to feed our growing population. I think permaculture is one of those sustainable practices which seems to have a lot of promise in doing so, but like I've said, everything I know is out of a book. I would like to join this group to gain a more hands on experience.
Hi! My name is Daniel and I am very interested in permaculture. I recently received my degree in Environmental Studies at Sacramento State University and have been looking for a new group that's interested in sustainability.
