Practice Permaculture Design on a Tiny Scale.
We don’t have to be designing for a farm, or a house and garden to be using permaculture design methodology. Good permaculture design can be practiced on a tiny scale – like the design of a hand tool, through to a small scale when we design a kitchen and upwards it goes. Permaculture Design can also be applied to social systems and business.
In our upcoming workshop about cooking on a fuel stove we shall
- be teaching Chapter 6 of the Permaculture Designers Manual by Bill Mollison. This will give participants a good grounding in the understanding of multifunctional trees.
- brush up ideas from Chapter 2 about Zoning and what can grow where (once we factor in the micro-climates, sectors and plant preferences)
- Glean strategies out of Chapter 12 that help us survive the winter better in a warm-temperate climate
