Instructed by Mark Shepard Back to Top
August 27 & 28, 9AM to 4:30PM, Minneapolis, MN Visit the Event Website Pattern is design, and design is the subject of permaculture, Mollison tells us in the Designers Manual. Patterns are nature’s ways of storing information, resolving conflicts, efficiently using resources, moving materials smoothly, recycling waste, and recognizing and ordering connections and relationships. They are also one of the hardest-to-grasp (and teach) elements of permaculture design. This two-day workshop will cover:
- A vocabulary of basic patterns and how they function in both nature and design;
- how patterns are formed and how they regulate and shape energy, material, social, and economic flows;
- how patterns are used in indigenous, Western, and other cultures;
- Fibonacci and the golden ratio, sacred geometry, and the science and mystery of pattern dynamics;
- identifying and choosing the patterns that best suit specific design challenges;
- using patterns and creating pattern languages to design physical and social landscapes and technologies.Back to Top
