Project: Stone Turtle Farm

Posted by Chris Muscat almost 10 years ago

The incredible subtle heart of the natural world

Today at home with my children surrounded by the warm sun and softness of the world. Powerful and lovely, hand covered with soil the sweetest smells of life pushing up for its first peek, its first breathe. How must it feel to emerge into life once again or prepare the journey from seed. All the nutrients and relationhships ahead of you, with the elements of nature coming together in so many ways unseen and spiritual. How precious and lucky to witness this emergence a prayer wheel of the seasons.

I some times stand and admire the slow progress of it all, the blossoms, the bumble bees slow and slugish flying in circles around your head, trying to drag you into its dizzying effect. The darkest of greens in small bean plants and the deep red of rhubarb or comfreys soft leaf and growth.

I breath and breathe deep, the water entering the earth, the earth under your finger nails. Amazing.

Time gone by.. the earth is real good, isn't she.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
