Permaculture Around the World and at HOME.

The unfolding journey that is bringing sustainability to the worlds doorstep


Evening Talk in Cork – Thursday, September 3, 2015, 19.00 – UCC, Boole 1 Lecture Theatre


Join international permaculture educator, mentor and storyteller, Warren Brush, for an inspiring evening of stories and images that will take you on a journey into his extensive peace-nurturing work through the worldwide Permaculture movement that brings sustainable and equitable living to people and communities at home in Ireland as well as in Africa, America, Australia, the Middle East, and the rest of Europe.

From rural villages in Africa to the largest cities in the world, Permaculture is creating sustainable human settlements through the conscious application of pattern design. From home kitchen gardens to broad conservation projects, from small holder farms to multi enterprise commercial farming, Permaculture offers a design methodology that aligns our systems of living with natural systems for ecologic, social, cultural and economic efficiency, resilience and stability.

Warren will share a hopeful vision for our future that derives from his experiences and understandings gained from his lifelong work in sustainable settlement design, the mentoring of youth and adults, the learning from indigenous elders and cultures, working with child soldiers and distressed communities around Africa, and educating people around the world in how to live in a sustainable manner in a way that is both equitable, resilient and beautiful.
