I visited Mangyan tribes in the Philippines when I was in college. The Mangyan do not traditionally farm. But they do lightly tend to certain areas of the mountains and forests where edible plants grow naturally. No fences, barely any planting, and open to all, these spaces were humble but productive. My conversations with them led me to believe that they practiced a kind of permaculture, though they did not have a word for it.
I have not taken a permaculture couse yet.
I am currently still learning.
None yet. Hopefully this group will be a gateway to the right resources.
I am most interested in discussing urban farming and land use.
I am currently working for a floral design studio and garden center so I'm slowly getting into all things green. I'm new to permaculture but I'm very eager to learn.
