Happenings in Hohenwald

by Greg Landua

With the National and Global Economies in a downward spiral, people are looking around for real life alternatives. One of the most tangible results from the course was the injection of over $28,000 into the local economy. When combined with an experiment in local currency issued by the Lewis County Chamber of Commerce, the economic multiplier (the number of times money circulates through a local economy before exiting) was raised by an estimated 3.8 percent on $5,000, which boosted the total net economic gain from the course to $47,000. The Local Currency was a hit at many of the businesses, and there are plans to start consulting with local bankers to work toward making a countywide regional currency to help boost the local economy.

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a holistic design philosophy and the art and science of creating community eco-systems in which plants, animals, human beings, and all forms of ecological diversity interact to produce a prolific, ecologically-sound, and regenerative system that can support itself and life indefinitely. The focus of permaculture is to design and establish societal systems that provide for humanity’s material and non-material needs such as food, water, shelter, energy, and health in a way that is symbiotic and synergistic with the Earth’s natural ecosystems. More recently permaculture is incorporating an ever-growing landscape of diverse fields and skill sets and is being applied towards areas such as business, government, economics, group process, social systems, inner work, and spiritual practice.
