Permaculture Workshop
with Vidya Chaitanya

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is 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.

In this 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.
