What is Permaculture & How Can it Meet Our Needs?
A collaborative brainstorm which produced two mind map graphics.
On 1st June, 2019 I was invited to Introduce Permaculture at the Coolum Women’s Shed – Garden Group start-up. I wasn’t sure how much the group knew or what I should share with them. So, I used a knowledge harvesting technique I learnt from Robin Clayfield (during her Dynamic Groups course). I posed the questions…
- WHAT IS PERMACULTURE?
- HOW CAN PERMACULTURE MEET OUR NEEDS?
…then asked each person to write as many answers as they could think of onto separate pieces of paper. These were then stuck onto a large piece of cardboard (one for each question) as so…
- If two people had the same answer = placement was one on top of the other (overlaying).
- If the answer was similar, but not the same = placement was next to.
- If the answer was unrelated = placement was somewhere else.
The result was a collaborative brainstorm mind map. Which was later – turned into a graphic.
Let’s check out the results!
The first question…
