Eunice has travelled around Australia and the United States for 15 months to research mature Permaculture systems and why they were successful. During this independent and crowdfunded research, Eunice lived and worked in some of the world’s best permaculture projects and studied them in detail. Her main intention was to learn directly from the pioneer’s experiences (their challenges and achievements) and share that information with young Permaculture designers, so they could fast track their actions.
Right from the beginning Sara and Eunice have been co-creating various materials for the research crowdfunding supporters and the worldwide Permaculture movement.
Permaculture Systems Research Tour
In Australia the research involves visits to diferent Permaculture projects of interest along the East coast. In some of them I might stay one week in others one or two months. This itenerant experience will allow me to observe different mature sites and their ecosystems’ responses to the implementation of Permaculture design. It will also allow me to do some survey on a few relevant aspects: – How have this projects suceeded ubder climate change? -What have they produced as food? – How have they buffered and changed the microclimate to be more benign? – How they integrate their social and educational aspects in their daily life? – etc.
