Permaculture for kids
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a design system that creates resilient, sustainable relationships between human beings and the rest of the natural world.
Supporting children from early childhood to develop a sensitive, compassionate and cooperative relationship with each other and the natural world is a crucial step in generating a new consciousness.
Doing permaculture with children supports them in learning to value resources and finding creative ways to live in harmony with the world.
In Permaculture there are 3 main ethics that will be present in every session that Finca Hormigas teaches to your children.
Earth care is about working in harmony with nature in order to minimize negative impact and maximize positive impact upon the environment.
People care means taking care of others and ourselves. Cooperation, empathy, clear communication, creative expression, well-being, and inclusive thinking are therefore encourage.
Fair share is about striving towards equality between people regardless of skin color, gender, nationality, and seeking equity between humans and other species.
