Permaculture comes to life when explored with others. The collective energy enables more to be achieved, elevates spirits and brings a stimulating variety of perspectives for discussions.
Working in community is also the most complex and demanding aspect that many permaculture practitioners face. In this course we explore some strategies to find others with a shared purpose to form a community, how to successfully build a community and create trade structures to share wealth and resources.
The following topics are explored:
- Finding your Tribe: Describes the evolutionary disposition we have to form secure attachment with small group of trusted people from which we derive a sense of connection, fulfill our esteem needs.
- Building Community: Explores some of the strategies around forming intentional communities around a shared purpose and navigate some of the challenges to doing this.
- Community Trade: Explores examples of local trade and finance as examples of sharing resources within a community.
