[AlternativeAnswers] [Be the Change] Sustainability, Permaculture and Leadership

 

Hello friends,

Many people think of permaculture as gardening, but that's a lot like
thinking of math as being only good for building bridges. Permaculture is
a sustainable design science rooted in observation of nature and providing
solutions to some of our most pressing problems. The same branching
pattern that's found in tree is also found in a river, in your heart, and
numerous other places. That pattern maximizes edge (surface area for
exchanging information or nutrients), increases diversity and serves a
whole range of other functions.

Join an incredible regenerative leadership and permaculture design
certification retreat in the San Francisco Bay Area, February 16-24th or
April 20-28th, and go beyond sustainability towards a wildly fulfilling
life and a truly regenerative culture. We offer a no-nonsense, deeply
pragmatic, mainstream approach to permaculture. No ideologies, only
functional design and solutions that truly work. "This course was the
BEST time I have had in the past 6 years" -- Lana T

The most common example of biomimicry and permaculture is velcro, which was
invented by a swiss engineer who removed burrs from his dog, and noticed
how the small hooks on the burr grabbed to his dog's fur. Another great
example is better packaging designs. Have you ever considered how nature
packages pomegranate seeds inside a pomegranate? What we teach is
fundamentally the art of biomimicry -- observing nature and designing our
whole way of life with the patterns of nature, while often allowing nature
to do much of the work for us.

and a truly thriving life, deeply rooted in the patterns of nature and a

regenerative leadership skills for your life, career, business, and
community from the world's leading sustainability experts; and earn your

beyond the garden - you will learn to design nature-inspired, resilient,
regenerative systems – composting toilets, water-catchment system,
natural green buildings, eco-villages and much more.

While many people think of permaculture as gardening, that's a lot like
thinking of math as being about building bridges. Permaculture is a
sustainable design science rooted in observation of natural patterns. For
example, the same branching pattern of a tree is present in every river, as
well as in our own bodies -- the pattern maximizes edge, increases
diversity, and serves at least a dozen other functions. The very concepts
of diversity increasing stability of natural living systems and edge
increasing diversity are core permaculture teachings.
