Diversity is death for a Permaculture Community, Regenerative Permaculture Farm and Garden podcast 9
The purpose of a permaculture community? It seems to me that folks want to join a community to practice permaculture in peace and enjoy the benefits of like minded designers that can band together to share ideas and help each other out with labor. A community has many benefits than friends bathing in permaculture. It could really cut down on the resources each member needs to spend, if they decide to split the cost of tools and machines. This is a very cool way to cut down on the money each member needs to reach their goals. I could go on with all the benefits of one wanting to be in a community. If a community has so many benefits, why do most fall apart? Where is the utopia of permaculture in these communities? I don’t think permaculture is the issue, people are the problem. More than that, allowing diversity in a community is one of the major problem with a healthy long lived community. I will make the argument that diversity is death for a permaculture community.
Keep in mind, I reject the idea that skin color or place of birth has anything to do with diversity or lack of it.
