Every single one individual can contribute to the redesign of our common regenerative and sustainable future. Practicing and teaching permaculture design for the past 5 years has convinced me of this. I am more hopeful for the future than I have ever been. People get what is possible with permaculture and people find its knowledge, skills, values and wisdom within! It has been there for many generations. It has been evolving and transmitted to our genes, brain and heart from the first form of life on this planet. THIS EDUCATION REVEALS OUR TRUE AND INFINITE HUMAN POTENTIAL. IT IS FOR EVERY HUMAN THAT WANTS TO UNDERSTAND AND FEEL WHY WE ARE HERE ON THIS PLANET! #permaculture #regenerative #sustainability #design #water #plants #air #soil #energy #naturalresources #planetearth #permaculturedesign (in the pic: my #Saddleback intro to permaculture students and their final conceptual design for the revival of a native garden on campus)

Our homes can become spaces that inspire, empower and support the regenerative and sustainable transformation of our shared environment and community. The San Clemente homestead harvests rain, conserves water, energy and resources, grows food, builds biodiversity and soil, sequesters carbon, works towards zero waste, provides habitat for wildlife, supports polinators, meaningful jobs and businesses, and educates the community. 2019 will be even more epic! Our commitment is growing stronger! #permaculture #education #ecology #ecosystem #sustainability #agroecology #regenerativefuture #community #waterconservation #compost #vermicompost #gardening #urbanfarming #orangecounty #sanclemente #economy #entrepreneurship #health #soil #zerowaste #climatechange #love

Our homes have infinite and long lasting impacts on our local and global shared environment and community. Everything that goes in and comes out of our homes is intricately interconnected with the health of our planet and society. Our settlements can be productive ecosystems that harvest rain, conserve water, produce food, medicine and energy, build biodiversity and habitat, regenerate our soils and air, and inspire, empower and support sustainability at the individual, community, business, government and academic level. THIS IS THE VISION FOR OUR HOMESTEAD AND HOMES AROUND THE WORLD. We grow some of our food and medicine, compost food waste from our kitchen and others, we build soil and capture atmospheric carbon, we collect rain, we feed local wild life, we use renewable energy, we share the surplus and we educate and gather the local community around permaculture. We are on a mission to further develop our positive ecological impact and we are excited for the future.

The joy of working with nature, like nature, in nature. Our permaculture students are learning about the ins and outs of building soil, conserving water, creating biodiversity and native habitat, and growing food and medicine within the context of fruit tree guilds. (The smiles are contagious).This homestead is becoming a space of inspiration, empowerment and support for regenerative and sustainable actions. We are learning how to revive our shared environment and community. We are doing it for the planet, the people and the future. #permaculture #design #soil #compost #vermicompost #zerowaste #sustainability #regenerative #urbanfarming #homestead #polinators #dynamicacumulators #bees #yarrow #fruit #trees #mulch #waterconservation

Full permaculture systems is what we design, install and care for. We also teach others how to do it. We do it for the planet, for the people and for the future. We do it for our shared environment and community. We work to create a regenerative and sustainable future for all to enjoy. One home garden, one homestead, small garden, school garden, hoa, public and private space at a time! Organic food, biodiversity, native habitat, rain harvest, composting, medicine and joy. Saves money, regenerates nature, employs young locals, builds sustainable economies.

Nature is the best teacher. We have learned a lot from her about how a regenerative homestead and business can look and work like. After years of successful home based vermicompost and vermiculture operations, as well as hot and cold compost, we are expanding our operations to bring this black gold of organic and regenerative gardening and farming to our local and regional market. Compost is place based and it works best in the local/regional ecological context where it is made (thank you @thepermaculturestudent and Dr. Elaine Ingham for making that clear). We took it easy on our worms and they have shown us that they can do much more! They love food waste from local juceries and restaurants. Our fundraiser to expand will launch soon after the "conversations about and for sustainability" podcast and will reward supporters with the best vermicompost coastal Southern California can offer. We are reducing inevitable food waste and producing vegan life giving fertility for organic growing! #composting #worms #food #waste #healthy #decomposition , #vermicompost #organic #fertilizer #wastereduction #biomimicry #fertility #carbonsequestration #climatechange #compost #zerowaste #fundraiser

Greatful for our common mother that gives so much more than it takes. Greatful for all of her sons and daughters that work with her to regenerate what is degraded and sustain all that is life giving; the fresh air in our lungs, the rich nutrients in our bodies, the awe in our minds, the joy in our hearts. Greatful for all that is good and all that we have to learn from. #thanksgiving #thanks #grateful #gratitude #nature #earth #motherearth #air #water #mountains #blue #clouds #travel #usa #california #sage #lake #mountainlake #snow

Hopeful for the future. Women in politics, women in leadership, women entrepreneurs, women leading the regenerative and sustainable transformation of our shared environment and community. Women changing the narative of our past few degrading decades, now towards ecological regeneration and social equity. This is the bridge between the work our mothers and grandmothers did to keep the total destruction at bay and the abundant and empowering future our daughters and granddaughters will enjoy. Inspired and empowered by the future @beekeepingypsy is making possible for all of us. Greatful for just another day at the #sanclemente #homestead. #womenpower #superwoman #education #beekeeping #queen #queenbee #permaculture #sustainability #regenerative #regenerativefuture #love #mothers #motherearth #world #change

Gaining new knowledge is a privilege of the conscious being. Consciously, intentionally and continuously updating convictions is enlightenment. Using it for the benefit of all is the ultimate expression of love. - excited to update my language, my communication and my approaches to actively participate in the regenerative and sustainable transformation and evolution of our shared environment and community. Podcats / Vlog launching December 1st! Looking forward to share the world that is possible with all. #sustainability #regenerativefuture #permaculture #design #education #future #life #love #health #circulareconomy #zerowaste #entrepreneurship @hunterlovins @afinerfuture

This space has been good to me for almost 2 decades. San Clemente is considered to have one of the best climates in the world. It does have its problems, like any other place in the world, ecosystems loss, pollution and hidden social inequalities. The possibilities to transform this place into a thriving, regenerative and sustainable human settlement are endless. I do see a few signs in this direction: permaculture gardens popping out in backyards and school gardens, and there is so much more it can be done. There are a lot of private and public spaces that can produce healthy and organic food, heal the soil and sequester carbon, harvest rain, build ecological resiliency through biodiversity and eliminate harmful toxins. This town can feed and heal all its residents and beyond. Here and committed to help make that happen. #permaculture #ecology #urbanfarming #regenerative #sustainability #sanclemente #carbonsequestration #zerowaste #organic #health #future #education #design

Finally understanding what it takes to have this 5 decades old olive tree on our homestead produce high quality fruit. The process starts this winter and we shall have pickled olives by this time next year. Love finding out how to use existing bio resources for permaculture yields. Water, compost and pruning are key. #permaculture #learning #ecology #food

Walking through this space where so much love was invested throughout the years is life giving. It heals the sensory inputs and mind focus at every corner. The aproach has changed from anxious rapid growth to light and loving touches. Patience for ecological succession is a virtue learned from nature. This space cares for the earth, cares for people and shares its surplus at all times! #permaculture #regenerative #sustainability #education #love #life #health #ecosystem #zerowaste #waterconservation #carbonsequestration

Featured Sponsor for our work - Our friend Chris Garcia from @organicsoutback is committed to a regenerative and sustainable future in our local shared environment and community and beyond. He expresses that both through his work and his generosity, supporting permaculture and urban regenerative farming education, as well as healthy school garden ecosystems. He is sponsoring a partial scholarship for our upcoming Permaculture Course, starting November 4th, and a portion of the material costs we need for our work at the Marblehead Elementary Regenerative School Garden @sanclementeschoolgardens. We are infinitely grateful! These are the kind of partnerships through which we inspire, empower and support sustainability together! (PS: Chris will also share his experience on what it takes to develop and lead a successful ecological landscape company in Orange County, in one of our upcoming “Conversations About And For Sustainability” podcast episodes) #permaculture #education #ecological #landscape #landscapedesign #sustainability #regenerative #regenerativefuture #podcast #sustainabilitypodcast #schoolgardens #organicgarden #zerowaste #philanthropy

Our homestead is becoming a space of inspiration, empowerment and support for those who are committed to regenerate our shared environment and community. The Bee Guardians Aprenticeship 5 month Course started today with 10 wonderful ladies that will become leaders to transform the life of Bees, and implicitly our lives that depend on these life giving polinators, in Orange County and beyond. With @beekeepingypsy as a partner for education About And For Sustainability we are building a network of educated, skilled, impactful, effective and transformative change making leaders in the world. Our core offering and pillar of our education, the Permaculture Design Certification Course, starts next Sunday, November 4th, and scholarship spots are still available!

Conversations About And For Sustainability seek and explore solutions for a healthy, abundant, thriving, regenerative and sustainable future. When the question on how do we make it possible for all of us, for the entire humanity, current and future generations, indefinitely, comes up, the discussion can include subjects on the dark side of the problems and challenges we are currently facing as a whole. They are tough to process and accept. We can and must dig deeper, no matter the pain that we must honor. #sustainability is about all of us. #permaculture #education #planetearth #people #love #health #life #weareinthistogether
