This session will introduce participants to several ancient design practices by investigating agriculture; specifically the current Permaculture movement, and the indigenous practices it draws from.
Participants will explore the design principles of Permaculture in relation to natural cycles and patterns. Participants will reflect on what current technology has to offer us when coupled with an understanding of ancient systems for sustainability. Participants will consider the history of human interaction with natural cycles and patterns; namely Permaculture and Indigenous agricultural practices.
