This video comes from a lecture given at the Petaluma Seed Bank, California, in July 2012. This video is the sequel to Toby’s popular talk, “How Permaculture Can Save Humanity and The Planet, but not Civilization.”

Video Description from YouTube:

Modern agriculture, industry and finance all extract more than they give back, and the Earth is starting to show the strain. How did we get in this mess and what can we do to help our culture get back on track? The ecological design approach known as permaculture offers powerful tools for the design of regenerative, fair ways to provide food, energy, livelihood, and other needs while letting humans share the planet with the rest of nature. This presentation will give you insight into why our culture has become fundamentally unsustainable, and offers ecologically based solutions that can help create a just and sustainable society.
