This is the first book to explore how to use permaculture design and principles for people - to restore personal, social and planetary well-being. "People & Permaculture" widens the definition of permaculture from being mainly about land-based systems to include our own lives, relationships and society. This book provides a framework to help each of us improve our ability to care for ourselves, our friends, families and for the Earth. It is also a clear guide for those who may be new to permaculture, who may not even have a garden, but who wish to be involved in making changes to their lives and living more creative, low carbon lives. "People & Permaculture" transforms the context of permaculture making it relevant to everyone.Part 1 - provides a detailed introduction to permaculture design and principles as applied to people.Part 2 - looks at the tools and techniques we can use in our own lives; how we can transform our internal landscape, enhance our well-being and be at our best.Part 3 -investigates ways of creating harmony in our relationships and groups, through our communication and decision making.Part 4 - explores a wider vision for our social systems, in particular health and education.Part 5 - moves on to explore how to expand our feelings of connection across the globe.Part 6 - focuses on how we can manifest a positive future with the use of a new design framework specifically created for people-based designs.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.
