Back when I was first learning about re-skilling and reconnecting with the land, I found a new friend with similar interests who mentioned to me that she was taking a "PDC" which apparently stood for Permaculture Design Course. Perma-what??! (<----CLICK HERE) I thought to myself. Thanks to researching via trusty Google and what I like to call "YouTube University," I had another "Ah-Ha!" moment. Everything I was doing on my own had a name! It was called Permaculture! Less than a month later I was taking my own PDC. Right about now you might be say to yourself: "Perma-what??!" (<----CLICK HERE) just as I did. Permaculture is the easy answer to all our complicated problems!
In its essence, Permaculture is a celebration of being human. A celebration of being human within a bountiful environment. If we truly understand how to build a sustainable relationship with what's around us then it becomes a endless paradise. It's about understanding the interrelationships within nature and in turn becoming an ambassador to those relationships . We are the only big brained species on this planet that have the power to create or destroy willingly. With Permaculture, creating becomes much more desirable, more self-benefiting, and more self-fulfilling.
