The world is never static. Our lives shift from month to month and day to day. Trees and children grow, and the best laid plans of mice and men unspool into the wilds of time, and death cycles through refreshing and keeping all things new. The climate changes, and even the shape of the land changes if we look out far enough.

The world is never static. Our lives shift from month to month and day to day. Trees and children grow, and the best laid plans of mice and men unspool into the wilds of time, and death cycles through refreshing and keeping all things new. The climate changes, and even the shape of the land changes if we look out far enough.

So we’ll be talking about change! Thanks Demarus Tevuk for leading the conversation about the need to address this.

From a permaculture lens, we’ll set the stage with Holmgren’s principle to “Creatively Use & Respond to Change”, then dive into talking about:

- Some specific traditional and indigenous systems that intrinsically involve change

- Using the Scales of Landscape Permanence

- Using permaculture zones for both prescriptive planning and descriptive rationalization

- Designing guilds for early annual yield and longterm perennial yield

- Dancing along the tension between making detailed, intergenerational plans while joyfully embracing change.
