Permaculture: a Rhymer's Manual - Luminate Festival

Permaculture: a Rhymer’s Manual


Presenter: Charlie Mgee
Suitable for: All ages

An eccentric experience in ecological edutainment (entertainment that is educational), we will go on a musical exploration of David Holmgren’s 12 principles of permaculture from his book ‘Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability’. This is one way to turn earthworms into earworms and commit the principles of regenerative design to memory through music, mnemonic and meme.

The power of music, rhyme and humour will be used to convey the permaculture principles in fresh ways to new crowds. An innovative and inspiring permaculture teaching method. This will be accompanied by the Australian musical-activist band Formidable Vegetable.
