Have you heard about Kansas City’s Urban Farm Guys? If not, learn how those inspired by the sustainability and local communities movement are building community and applying permaculture principles.
In December 2013, David Holmgren (Co-founder of the Permaculture movement) released an op-ed piece entitled “Crash On Demand” (1), which serves as a thought provoking argument for the collapse of the global economy in order to starve off the catastrophic tipping point associated with Climate Change.
The Kansas Permaculture Institute is a Kansas not-for profit and parent organization for Kansas Permaculture Collaborative. The mission of the Kansas Permaculture Institute is to provide oversight in the development of permaculture course curriculum, to issue Permaculture Design Certificates, plan community educational events, workshops, permablitz events, land tours, and conduct basic research, and provide support and maintenance of Kansas regional permaculture demonstration sites .
