Permaculture: A Tool for Justice

Permaculture is an ecological design system that incorporates Indigenous wisdom from around the world to help us create a more life-affirming, ethical world and work with nature. Even though permaculture is often thought of as a fancy word for a fancy gardening system, in this session we’ll break down the principles of Permaculture Design and cover ways in which those principles can be used as tools to radically heal harmful and unjust social systems (invisible structures) and can help us work towards social justice. In an era of Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock, skyrocketing living costs on the Front Range, climate chaos, and the largest women’s marches in history, we can’t afford to keep ecological design or social justice issues in the background.

Join us for a unique presentation with innovative permaculturists and permaculture educators from the Front Range who are also deeply committed to and embedded in social justice work and education.
