Social Permaculture = Community 🤝 Permaculture
Within the permaculture movement, "social permaculture" is getting more attention, which uses the method of permaculture in human relationships, communities, and social systems. When we come together in a community, our needs, communication styles, goals, and perceptions of steps toward the goals can clash. Differences are natural and can be part of the solution when utilizing healthy relational tools.
Is a community’s purpose best communicated as a question?
I've always been a fan of how questions open up possibilities. Applying that to a community's purpose makes it interesting.
"And I have come to realize that questions are a splendid way to communicate the shared direction(s) of a community. They show that at the center of a group is a shared inquiry. They subtly make clear that we don’t actually know where we’re going, but that what unites us is a commitment to explore the question together." —Fabian Pfortmüller
