Soul's Garden

Project Type

Rural, Community, Educational, Permaculture Local Group Transition Town Permablitz, Political

Project Summary

Tending the Soul's Garden is dedicated to cultivating the soil of our inner garden so that we may bring forth abundance in our lives and our world. The project is afiliated with Dancing TreePeople Farm. We offer permaculuture publications and materials focused on personal and cultural transformation.

Project Description

We are alive at an amazing and difficult time: where humans around the globe are both connected and facing the reality that the entire planet is in peril. As each of us engages in the difficult work ahead, we risk becoming depleted and disheartened, while powerful forces support the continued plundering of planetary and human communities.  Tending the Soul’s Garden:Permaculture as a Way Forward in Difficult Times is a transformational book best classified in the self-help genre.

Tending the Soul's Garden is an introduction to applied permaculture, offering an innovative way to engage in the difficult and transformative work of our time. It is dedicated to cultivating the soil of our inner garden so that we may bring forth abundance in our lives and our world.   Permaculture, also known as ecological or regenerative design, offers a path— a design for living in complex changing systems using principles found in nature.

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.
