"Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple,' says Bill Mollison - the co-founder of "Permaculture." What are these simple solutions? And how are they actually implemented? During this in-depth and interactive workshop, we will examine the specific strategies that the design science of permaculture recommends for our evolving society. In a time of ocean dead zones, soil erosion, and erratic weather, Permaculture offers innumerable strategies for the needed revolution in our agricultural eco-systems. The superstructure of society must also shift through "Social Permaculture," and cultural innovations inspired by nature. This discussion based, Q&A filled gathering will facilitate participants to deepen their understanding and confidence in using permaculture for Soil & Soul wellbeing.
