Accepting Feedback From (and Giving Back To) Your Systems

Back at our Building Your Permaculture Property summit, Ben Falk gave a super insightful presentation, part of which covered how to develop an integrated system with yourself and your systems, with a greater understanding of interconnectedness. To be in a thriving state, accepting both the natural feedback from our systems, as well as giving back to them, is absolutely crucial for leading an intuitive lifestyle. Ben believes that seeing the abundance for what it is and contributing as an active member within our natural systems, can allow us to live symbiotically with the landscape around us. Ben Falk is the owner of Whole Systems Design, LLC, and author of the book The Resilient Farm and Homestead. He works as a designer, builder, and ecologist - to find out more about Ben, check out his Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/wholesyst...
