What is Permaculture?
a creative and artful way of living, where waste becomes resources,
productivity and yields increase, work is minimized, people and
nature are all preserved and the environment is restored and even
enhanced - all by thoughtful planning and a respectful approach to
life. Thus embraced, we create an environment where all may thrive
for untold generations.
We as humans
have the ability to re-design the world we live in. All it takes is
desire, know how, will, and time. Even if it takes 50-100 years, the
change can begin with each one of us right now and the effects of
our work can have beneficial consequences for generations to come.
Usually, Permaculture students take
multi-session courses with practicum to integrate this novel way of
viewing life and planet and design, but Transition Los Angeles’
Vidya Chaitanya is offering a single-session overview class.
workshop you will get a working grasp of what permaculture is and
how the yoga lifestyle complements it. We will share pictures and
descriptions of some exciting examples of how permaculture design is
transforming the possibilities before us. A thorough study of
permaculture invites us to look at our homes, our uses and sources
of energy, our work, our relationships with others, and even our
relationship with ourselves. The goal of permaculture is to create
harmonious relationships with all aspects of our life.
The first 2 hours will
be in the classroom and the second two we will spend in the Learning
Garden at Venice High School.
