Women and Social Permaculture

Women in the Permaculture movement are in the forefront of developing “Social Permaculture”—the application of ecological principles and systems thinking to social dynamics—to structure healthy groups, create meaningful diversity, resolve conflicts and design empowering environments. This interactive session will use exercises and discussions to give us a taste of how these visionary women are highlighting “people care” in regenerative design.  With: Starhawk, Earth Activist Training; Pandora Thomas, Earthseed Consulting, Black Permaculture Network; Wanda Stewart, Program Director for the Victory Garden Foundation; Delia Carroll, founding member of the 13 Moon CoLab.
