Permaculture is a whole new way of seeing the world. We look at problems and see how we can re-imagine them as solutions. It follows three strong, simple ethics:
People Care, Earth Care and Fair Shares.
Permaculture is a design process by which we adapt as human beings to the Earth, rather than trying to adapt the Earth to us. Using simple tools and techniques, we apply the wisdom and success of nature to create abundance and resilience in our lives and businesses.
At 6-heads we are continuing to learn from these principles and explore on our permaculture journey with our community.
Day of Permaculture will connect our heads with new skills and knowledge; to our hearts – be meaningful work while light hearted and fun; with our hands – doing something physical and practical. We will be joined by the local community who look after and support the project. Together, we will make something happen and learn stuff.
HEAD – learning about permaculture design, the importance of soil fertility, and hot composting.
HEART – connect with self and others from a different community, work in a team, create a design together
HANDS – redesign the composting zone; build composting bays; build layered hot compost heap
The workshop will be run by 6Heads member, Kevin Mascarenhas from Natural Flow and hosted at Glengall Wharf Gardens (GWG). The workshop will teach us about permaculture while redesigning GWG’s composting zone.
By the end of the workshop you will have:
• learnt about the process of composting and the imprtance of soil fertility
• gained an understanding of linked systems thinking and the permaculture design framework
• We will have a redesigned and functional composting system and zone for GWG.
