This is part two from the first of the Susquehanna Permaculture Round discussion. Begin with part one if you are new to the show or would like a refresher.
Recorded in front of a live audience, the panelists were:
- Jon Darby, of the Horn Farm Center.
- Rafiyqa Muhammad, of Ngozi, Inc.
- Shannon Sylte.
- Ben Weiss, of The Rewilding School.
The questions for this first round included:
- What is the best way to use chickens in a permaculture design?
- How do we combine disciplines within permaculture?
- How do we include non-native species, and discuss natives vs. non-natives with customers?
- Should permaculture be taken mainstream?
- Should we use the word permaculture when discussing these practices with others?
- How do societal institutions impact the opportunity to raise capital and enact change in modern agriculture?
- How can we make permaculture more inclusive, particularly of women and people of color?
When you’ve finished listening if you would like to learn more from Rafiyqa’s many years as a civic leader in Harrisburg, actively engaging communities and local politics, so that you can do the same here is her information available.
