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.

Permaculture Ethics

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.
