Toby Hemenway's Permaculture Legacy: biodiversity and sustainability by design

Toby Hemenway gave a gift to the world through permaculture, and this is a preamble to Toby’s introduction to permaculture course videos. Permaculture is about much more than gardening, but if you want an abundant garden you’ll want to watch this entire series! Toby was one of the best permaculture teachers on the planet as he clearly communicated complex ideas in ways that anyone could understand. He made permaculture fun, exciting and backed up the ideas of permaculture with science.   In this video, Takota and Rob provide this pre-amble to Toby’s “Creating Gaia’s Garden: Part 1” video. They share their own take on permaculture principles, zones, sectors, needs and yields as well as using resources to their highest end. They also discuss the difference between technique, principles and process and why it is important to understand the difference.  Toby’s “Creating Gaia’s Garden” introduction to permaculture course has 5 parts, and each will be released in turn over the next few weeks. Before each part of Toby’s course, Takota and Rob will post a prelude video discussing topics in the next “Creating Gaia’s Garden” video.

Permaculture & the City Pt 2: How Permaculture Design Can Save The Day In Our Cities!

Permaculture design can provide solutions to serious challenges facing our cities' urban ecosystems, solutions that create healthy, sustainable ecosystems for all living things. In Part 2, Rob shares ideas and perspectives on how the tools and principles of permaculture design can be applied to the environmental crises of pollution, energy, and food that are facing humankind in urban ecosystems. Climate change is not the only crisis looming on the horizon for urban residents., and urban municipalities need to act now if they are to be sustainable and their residents are to be prepared. After watching this video you will understand the exact kinds of urgent action that cities and towns need to take to prepare for the coming crises. You will also learn about sustainable development and ways of increasing the sustainability of our large urban centres where millions of people rely on food from far away that uses far more energy to bring to our tables than it provides.
