Permaculture Solutions To Climate Change

Creating Local EconomiesAmory Lovins of Rocky Mountain Institute, a pioneering engineer in the field of ecological design, estimates that 87% of materials in the present world’s economy are mined, extracted, and refined, and just 13% are biological or plant based. I am suggesting that over the next few generations, as we develop our collective ecological ethic, we will limit consumption of toxic stuff we do not need and begin to have more of our material needs coming from nearer at hand and flip that number to
87% biological and 13% coming from a closed loop industrial cycle.
How we do this is the focus of a book I am working on.
It will surely take a corresponding amount of time and focus as the Industrial Revolution has occupied. We are going to need to train up several generations to redesign and reengineer our worlds with nature and long-term posterity in mind. The movement to do this is growing. We are seeing what Paul Hawken characterizes as a groundswell of public opinion and market growth in the healthy ecological people-based economy over the last several decades. People want real food grown by real people and a better quality of life.
Right now in the northeastern US, demand for a better alternative in a wide range of product sectors and services is outstripping supply, evidences by the costly purchases of imported options from the EU.

Let’s first ask what are we trying to change, so we avoid mistakes like fueling the regional food movement on a lot of fossil fuels and labor intensive tractor heavy methods. Then we will get back to these exciting and in high demand comprehensive bioregionally based solution sets.

What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a design tool and worldwide movement that is helping to regenerate local ecologies and economies by addressing our social justice and environmental issues from a whole systems perspective.

This course is the foundational 72 hour Permaculture Design Certification program, endorsed by PINA the Permaculture Institute of North America. We've adapted our course to the northeastern corridor and to contemporary social and ecological issues in the United States and the world.
Our Permaculture design certification course imparts a positive and empowering vision for social and ecological transformation. We will train you to be a permaculture consultant enabling you to apply the permaculture principles to a diversity of landscapes, scales, and issues from rural to urban, from temperate to tropical environments.
The certification connects you to an international world of designers, architects, organic farmers, and communities who all recognize a permaculture design certificate as a legitimate passport to another level of knowledge.

Come find out why our graduates call our Permaculture Design Certification course LIFE CHANGING! We have been holding space for everything permaculture in the greater NYC metropolitan area for over ten years! Come and learn with us and join our hundreds of students who have set upon their permaculture journey to positively impact life on earth.
