Redesigning Civilization – with Permaculture

by Toby Hemenway March 8, 2013

Modern agriculture, industry and finance all extract more than they give back, and the Earth is starting to show the strain. How did we get in this mess and what can we do to help our culture get back on track? The ecological design approach known as permaculture offers powerful tools for the design of regenerative, fair ways to provide food, energy, livelihood, and other needs while letting humans share the planet with the rest of nature. This presentation will give you insight into why our culture has become fundamentally unsustainable, and offers ecologically based solutions that can help create a just and sustainable society. This is the sequel to Toby’s popular talk, "How Permaculture Can Save Humanity and The Planet, but not Civilization."

Holistic Management

TED Talk with Allan Savory

WOW!  Recently Maurice Robinette gave a talk about "Holistic Management" at the Spokane Permaculture Study Group.  It was very interesting but after watching this TED Talk video from the originator of the concept (Allan Savory),  I realize I just didn't get the BIG PICTURE.  Very worth while video with global implications.  Thanks for the introduction Maurice :).

In the face of drought, fire, peak oil, energy depletion, soil depletion and more, what can you do to live a more eco-friendly life?
