Living sustainably requires an ethic of care and responsibility that enables us to maintain ourselves, our communities and our environments in ways that sustain and enhance life and wellbeing. To do this successfully requires the intentional design and management of human systems in ways that are compatible with and supportive of, all other natural systems. Permaculture, as a design system and philosophy of living, is used to explore processes for living sustainably and demonstrates principles of engagement with the natural world which bear relevance to holdings both large and small. Other design systems are also studied including Natural Sequence Farming and Yeoman?s Keyline. A key concept underpinning the study is the praxis of engagement between theory and practice. Besides covering the theory of design the subject will demonstrate how concepts work in practice.
