Permaculture inspires us to create sustainable cultivation of the land and a vibrant, sharing community. One of our favorite authors is David Holmgren, an Australian permaculture pioneer.
Can we really imagine a sustainable world without spiritual life in some form?— David Holmgren
Permaculture is a way of life. It is not just for people digging around on their land (like us 😉), you can practice it in the city too. In this entertaining presentation, David Holmgren shows the changes in a fictional Australian suburb from its start in the 1950s to the current time and beyond. Fun to watch!
Connecting with outer and inner nature
For a more serious approach, have a look at these future scenarios. Envisioned in 2007, they are surprisingly actual now. Not for the faint-hearted, because they go beyond feel-good projections about the time we live in and what we are facing. Yet, a clear understanding can take away diffuse feelings of anxiety. Being with nature helps to ground the trust that discovering one’s inner nature engenders. At Le Poiane, we aim to offer both.
Core Permaculture Principles
- Care for the Earth
- Care for the people
- Share when you have overflow
Spirit of land and people
Spirituality connects us with each other and the Earth. It underpins all we do. We believe that the hands-on approach of permaculture and a lived understanding of spirituality complement and enrich each other. A bird needs two wings to fly.
