I’m really looking forward to this workshop! Here’s an excerpt from Paul’s notes:
The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with rather than against nature; protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless action; of looking at systems in all their functions rather than asking only one yield of them; and of allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions.
