This one day workshop is about ecological and social healing. It will give a taste of both permaculture and working with social diversity. Together we will explore and open up ways to work together effectively, to recognise our differences and our common ground and to discover how permaculture and contemporary group approaches can support our vision to co-create more conscious, real and productive relationships between one another and the land.
The exact content of the workshop is yet to be finalised but potential areas include:
– What is permaculture?
– Introduction to permaculture ethics & principles
– Social permaculture: Nature in us
– Diversity: Feeling our own shoes and stepping into the shoes of the other
– Conflict: an opportunity for growth
– Strategies for collaborative decision making
