Permaculture is not a set of new ideas - it is a melding of understanding that comes from many sources - science, our grandparents, Indigenous cultures, observing nature, creative experimentation. The permaculture movement shares technological knowledge about how to live harmoniously with nature/agriculture, but we are continuously challenged by knowing how to come together as humans to effectively and cooperatively implement these solutions in our self care, interpersonal relations, and at the cross-cultural.
This event will showcase the work of activists in Portland who draw upon permaculture/Traditional Indigenous Knowledge to bring health and vitality into the social-cultural realm. The brief presentations will share methodologies and opportunities to get involved through discussion where the facilitators bring diverse experiences and techniques to facilitate our deepening awareness and practice of striving for right relationship with the web of life.
