The Necessity of Permaculture
with Graham Burnett
Friday 19th September 2008 – 7pm


“History is littered with societies that over exploited their resources, they are all now extinct. We are rapidly moving to the same situation. By designing rationally however, we can set up the systems we need for good living in such a way that they don’t destroy or pollute. Permaculture is the most coherent system yet devised.”- Steve Reed, Permaculture designer and teacher.

What is Permaculture? Why do we need Permaculture? What are Permaculture ethics and the principles of working with nature’s patterns? What are the Basics of the Permaculture design process? What are concepts such as Zones, sectors, edge, stacking and succession, and how they can work for us? How can you use Permaculture practically in your life, home, garden, land or community, whatever your situation?

Experienced permaculture practitioner, designer and teacher, Graham Burnett will be providing all the answers. His latest booklet on the subject ‘Permaculture, a Beginners Guide’ will encourage you to apply it’s ethics and principles of sustainability and working with, rather than against, nature to your land (whether it’s a window box or a 1000 hectare farm), your community and your life.
