Together with all other permaculture designers we dream and work towards a sustainable planet (just, fertile, thriving, vital and diverse) in which humans live in harmony with all other species.
We believe that stopping the destruction, working to build the soil, restore ecosystems, heal our addictions, change organizational structures of the global economy, and learn to live in a community starting locally… are the most important and urgent jobs to do NOW.
1) Integrity 2) Pass on our Wisdom, not our Grief 3) Take risks 4) Question our Models 5) Gratitude and Appreciation
