“Permaculture, Regenerative Design and Earth Repair for the Great Turning” is a deep dive into creating regenerative systems and playing an active role in the Great Turning –a shift from an industrial growth society to a life sustaining society. Joanna Macy and David Korten coined the term as they envisioned a movement to transform a society of overconsumption, inequality and environmental degradation into one that is regenerative, equitable and spiritually fulfilling.
You will learn about the principles of permaculture, including how to: work with natural systems, design for resilience, and create regenerative systems. You will also find out about the latest techniques, methods and strategies to help repair the earth. We know that all of our needs can be met without destroying and poisoning our world. This course is a wonderful opportunity to gain knowledge and skills that will aid in the transformation to a truly regenerative future.
