Permaculture is the foundation of Transition thinking. This primer is an ideal introduction for those who are new to the topic and for people who are considering committing to a full Permaculture Design Course. The workshop will cover permaculture ethics and principles, why we need permaculture, and real-world examples of permaculture projects.
