The Habitus Project

Project Type

Urban, Residential

Project Summary

Located on a former mine tailings pond site, The Habitus Project seeks to show by example that even a small, contaminated, urban site can produce safe food and a safe living environment.

Project Description

The Habitus Project is at 7,000 ft in the Rocky Mountains and within the city boundaries of an affluent community. Park City's revenue is based on tourist ski dollars and includes the annual Sundance Film Festival.  

The property was a Superfund Site.  It is located on a former mine tailings pond. The Habitus Project will demonstrate that even a small, contaminated, urban site can provide safe food and a safe living environment. 

It is rare for "affluent" populations to be faced with this level of contamination.  This, of course, offers a unique opportunity for dialogue on a myriad of social and environmental justice issues and to demonstrate bioremediation strategies.

 

It is my intention to demonstrate closed loop design using a systemic approach to “going green”.

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

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.
