Did Maslow get it wrong?

by April Sampson-kelly -

here is a very interesting article about the Maslow's hierarchy of needs

although the context is different for each of us in different nations and sub-cultures, it stirs a discussion about what is our greatest need?

Do we strive for purpose in our actions or, when starving, do we strive to satisfy those basic needs?

This topic draws us full circle in the journey of the permaculture design course.

We start with ethics and then aim to build skills and empowerment in taking steps to satisfy our needs locally and within our own means, then we can sit back and question our goals and if they sit within our ethics.

Design workshop - 40 steps

by April Sampson-kelly -

At the upcoming Permaculture Convergence in Brisbane, we will be hosting a Permaculture Design Workshop. The client is in the dry hills of China.

We will use our 40 steps as a playful way to look at the semi-cyclic process.
