Pete the Permie presents
Permaculture – the 4th ethic
Belief Systems in PDC’s
Much discussion has occurred on whether a PDC should contain any belief systems when being taught. One area that seems to fall very short especially in community groups is the 2nd ethic “Care of People” which has led to the development of the 4th ethic of permaculture – “Care of Spirit”. Pete will lead a discussion around these belief systems. Should religion, Biodynamics or other spiritual systems be included in the teaching or not? And if not where does the nurturing of people fit in a “Science Only” based design system in a world that needs lots more caring of oneself & each other?
Pete the Permie is a recognised a “Permaculture Elder” who facilitates awarded PDC’s and extension permaculture workshops. He runs a Permaculture demonstration farm, heritage fruit tree collection and Organic Nursery in Monbulk.
