Permaculture Launched in Taiwan
Taiwan is embracing permaculture with the first Permaculture Design Course starting Oct 26 in Taipei. Robyn Francis has been invited to Taiwan to conduct the course which will be translated into Chinese. The course organiser, Peter Morehead of Earth Passengers NGO, based in Taipei, is very excited about training a team of committed permaculture practitioners and teachers to develop strategies for sustainability for the island nation. The group has already translated Permaculture Educations PDC Handbook into Mandarin in readiness for the course and hopes this will provide a springboard for accelerating the adoption and spread of permaculture, not only in Taiwan but also in mainland China. Taiwan has a similar unsustainable ecological footprint to Australia and is very dependent on imported energy and goods.
