Introductory Permaculture

If you know me, you know that I’m a big fan of working collaboratively. There’s just a way that working with other people makes things real. One project has been working with the Great Lakes Permaculture Design Collaborative, Me, Rhonda Baird, and William Faith.

Originally we recorded these lectures as a intro to each of the topics in our first design course together in 2016. The idea was to divide up the topics between the three of us. One would present 10 slides on a subject and the other two would comment. In combination with the reading from the Designer’s Manual and later Practical Permaculture they’ve provided a solid foundation to conduct meaningful discussions in our PDC’s. We’ve been able to use them again in later courses and have found that the material has held up well.

We’d like to share this material with you, to help you on your own permaculture journey. It can be part of a path forward, away from the multi-layered crises of today and towards the future that we want.
