This episode examines Principle 2: Catch and Store Energy as presented by David Holmgren in his book, Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability. My focus at this time is on the mindset of how this principle provides a space for foresight and thinking about long-term needs and goals, as well as for the here-and-now.
To accompany this I recommend you listen to Matt Winters “The Gift” for what I consider a narrative showing permaculture as a comprehensive approach across place and time.
From there, the following guest’s discussions offer additional insight into the various elements of how we can think about as well as apply this principle.
