Cities are complex adaptive ecosystems. It is possible for them to meet the needs of their residents while simultaneously regenerating the health of their soils, water, and biodiversity. In this intensive, we will explore practical ways that we can redesign our urban habitat, taking into account the ecological, economic, and social justice aspects of permaculture.

Topics to be covered include:

Microlivestock: chickens, rabbits, ducks and pigeons
composting food wastes with worms and microbes
Rainwater harvesting,CSOs/DIY river remediation, and depaving,
Duck-a-poop-ponics and wastewater reuse
Low-intensity bioremediation: cleaning contaminated soils
Edible mushroom cultivation
Silkworms, and black soldier fly cultivation
Reconciliation ecology: promoting biodiversity in the city
Spirulina and algae/phycoculture
Ecologically regenerative micro-industries and Ecological literacy for youth
Aquaponics: fish &plant integration
