A lot of these ideas come from the practice of Permaculture:
Permaculture is a branch of ecological design, ecological engineering, environmental design, construction and integrated water resources management that develops sustainable architecture, regenerative and self-maintained habitat and agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.
I love these workshops because they help me to build new vocabulary to help address limitations in the current scientific paradigm. So much of facilitating thought-provoking discussions is about introducing new language. It allows us to be more concise in our definitions and more dynamic in our solutions. Feeling lucky to have the resources of such an insightful community.
