What is Permaculture?
David Shaw explored the answers to this question during a talk hosted by Sustainable Solano in August 2017, in Fairfield, CA. David is Santa Cruz Permaculture’s Director & Lead Designer.
Topics in this video include the permaculture ethics and principles, as well as examples of permaculture in the petals of the permaculture flower: land & nature stewardship, building, tools & technology, education & culture, health & spiritual well-being, finances & economics, and land tenure & community governance.
About Sustainable Solano
Sustainable Solano recently expanded its Sustainable Backyard Program to the City of Fairfield by launching a series of public education classes and workshops on the topics of sustainability, community resilience and sustainable landscaping. On August 26, 2017, Fairfield residents attended the first of these events at a talk with educator, ecological designer, farmer and musician, David Shaw at Fairfield Civic Center Library. Attendees listened as he defined and illustrated natural landscape, social and economic permaculture principles that contribute to a more harmonious, sustainable world.
