Permaculture design for businesses
Everything in nature is sustainable, closed loop, circular. Everything is part of the bigger picture, one organism providing food for another, nothing goes to waste, everything is useful and used.
Permaculture allows us to understand and learn from this perfectly designed system. To understand it and replicate it in our own designs.
This could be creating a zero waste business, using renewable energy, compostable packaging, sourcing suppliers locally, having diverse income streams, reusing materials, flexible hours, health packages for staff. The list goes on. We can look at the bigger picture and look at ways to tie everything together to create a truly sustainable, resilient, closed loop business.
how DOes it work?
I offer workshops that look at the ways you can use the principles of permaculture to redesign elements of your business.
This can be in the form of a 1 hour lunch and learn, or longer workshops for a specific team to focus on one part of your business. It is a fun and interactive workshop to get people thinking in a new way and leave you with key takeaways of how you could apply this philosophy to aspects of your business.
