What is permaculture? Permaculture combines three key aspects: 1. An ethical framework; 2. Understandings of how nature works; 3. A design approach. This unique combination provides an ethical framework that is used to design regenerative systems at all scales – from home and garden to community, farm and bioregions.
The word ‘permaculture’ comes originally from ‘permanent agriculture’ and ‘permanent culture’ – it is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature.Permanence is not about everything staying the same. It is about stability, about deepening soils and cleaner water, thriving communities in self-reliant regions, biodiverse agriculture, and social justice, peace and abundance.
The speaker for this talk will be Wilf Richards, who is a certified educator with Abundant Earth as well as a coordinator for the North East Permaculture Network and the North East Permaculture Diploma group.
Doors open at 6:30, the talk starts at 7pm. The talk and formal Q&A will be finished by 9 but many people stay to chat afterwards.
We charge £1 for NEH members and £2 for non-members, which covers the cost of light refreshments.
