What is Permaculture? How can it save the planet?From the Stone Age to the Oil Age. From thousands of years of foraging or hunt-gathering and horticulture all the way up to the comparatively new agriculture event which shaped our world, our society and locked us in the trap we’re in. Focusing on the misinformation regarding agriculture, an event that pinpoints the beginning of “Civilization” as we know today, Toby Hemenway reveals how we can smoothly overcome this transition period and move on to the next culture event: Permaculture, the first step towards living totally off the grid.
You will see how agriculture is responsible for the demise of the whole enviroment in which it is implemented. Not only that but also how agriculture has taken society apart, isolating its members, forcing a whole new social structure that promotes detachment between the common people and their leaders thus creating burocracy.It is also shown here the falacies, lies and misinformation regarding agriculture and agricultural peoples compared to the so underrated and overlooked horticulture event.In this brilliant lecture you will see how Permaculture can save humanity and the Earth, but not civilization as we know it.
