Eden Arising: Ecological Design as a Spiritual Practice
Explore the path to building an earthly paradise where we live in peace and harmony with nature, where it's beautiful, and where fertile soil allows good food to easily be grown at Eden Arising: Ecological Design as a Spiritual Practice, a Roots and Wings presentation by David Jacke.
In Eden Arising: Ecological Design as a Spiritual Practice, David Jacke explores the way in which we need to move as cultures toward the earlier understanding of interconnectedness of people and nature that is called up in Jewish and Christian scripture by Eden, but is found more easily and readily in Native American, Celtic, Buddhist, and other traditions.
"Permaculture goes way, way beyond just food production to redesigning our whole culture to mimic the principles, patterns, structures and functions of natural ecosystems. That includes our social relationships, our economy, our resource use, and our inner landscapesthe whole kit and caboodle," says David Jacke.
Dave Jacke, primary author of the award winning two-volume book Edible Forest Gardens, and just released Coppice Agroforestry, has studied ecology and design since the 1970s. For thirty years he has developed methods that have transform yards and gardens around the world into productive paradises. His leadership has been lent to innumerable workshops and courses that guide others in integrating farming, livestock, forest garden, coppice, and building systems. A cofounder of Land Trust at Gap Mountain in Jaffrey, NH, he homesteaded there for a number of years. He holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Simon's Rock College and a M.A. in Landscape Design from the Conway School of Landscape Design. He is also fluent in Sanskrit.
