permaculture goes to school
A work of many people...
he Permaculture in Schoolsinformation kit had its origin atthe Sixth InternationalPermaculture Convergence which tookplace during October 1996 in Bridgetown,Western Australia.Pacic Edge Permaculture undertook topublish the information assembled byparticipants and distribute it.
The aim of the kit is to bring together thetitles of publications and other resourcesof potential use to people working inpermaculture projects in schools or who are working in permaculture withchildren in other circumstances.Most of the resource listings werecontributed by participants at thePermaculture in Schools Networking Dayfollowing the 1996 Convergence.Others were contributed by participantsin Robyn McCurdy’s Children inPermaculture course which took placeimmediately prior to the February 1995national Permaculture Convergence atBlack Forest Primary School in Adelaide,South Australia.
As well as the bibliography and resourcelisting, there are a number of articles.Thanks are due to all who attended thepermaculture in schools sessions at theconvergences and who contributed to thisresource package, as well as to those whohave contributed since.The package is not intended as acomplete listing of all publications of relevance to the practice of permaculturein schools or to working with children inpermaculture. It simply aims to recordthose resources identied as usefulby participants of the permacultureconvergences.If there are titles you consider should beincluded, please send them in the formatwhich appears in the bibliographic listingto Pacic Edge Permaculture. We caninclude them in updated listings.
