Permaculture, proposed by David Holmgren and Bill Mollison in the mid-1970s, has returned with reason and strength to collective interest as social and environmental systems in the planet approach their limits of resilience.
In the words of one of its creators, David Holmgren, permaculture is “consciously designed landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fibre and energy for provision of local needs”. People, their buildings and the way they organize themselves are fundamental in permaculture. One of the first visions of permaculture as permanent or sustainable agriculture has evolved into the vision of permanent or sustainable culture.
In this introductory workshop, we will understand and embrace the fundamental concepts on which it is founded, and we will delve into its techniques through collaboration and practice. Thus, we will approach a small project of designing and planting a permacultural micro-garden that exemplifies different concepts.
