Heart Permaculture

Permaculture is part of a world wide transformation of human consciousness emerging through the growing awareness of the ecological crisis, its causes and solutions. By applying ecological principles to education, Robin Clayfield has revitalized permaculture learning and teaching. Her creative design methods, transformative mentoring and eldering, as well as learning tools and books have uplifted and empowered thousands around the world.

This is the second in a short series of permaculture life stories told by a series of Permaculture Pioneers at a historic Social Permaculture course at the Sustainability Centre in the UK.

Thanks to Dana Wilson, Delvin Solkinson and the dynamic Gaiacraft Team, Robin Clayfield’s life grab, entitled ‘Heart Permaculture’ is now available for you to look at. Robin was invited to be interviewed on camera and the outcome is four short video clips plus this one, presented to a 45 person audience during the Social Permaculture Course in UK last September. Can you tell there are 45 people watching? It’s also way there’s no direct eye contact with the camera as she’s scanning and speaking to the whole audience.
