People and Permaculture is the first book published on social permaculture and shows how we can use these holistic design principles in our lives and interactions with other people as well as our landscape!
People and Permaculture is a must read for anyone who is serious about reconnecting with themselves and being the best they can be. With practical exercises and illuminating metaphors, People and Permaculture has the potential to be a powerful force for positive change in our unstable world.
Looby starts at zone 00, yourself, and looks at how to apply the permaculture principles we have begun to know and love to new areas in our lives, like designing a schedule that works for your life, or maintaining personal health to create spirals of abundance. How to recognize and stop energy leaks, like procrastination or negative story telling. People and Permaculture goes on to interpersonal relationships, and out to how we can effect real change in the world and play our part in the Great Turning.
Including over 50 practical activities, People & Permaculture empowers readers with tried and tested tools to initiate positive change in their lives. It is a hands-on yet powerful guide to creating a sustainable world.
