Re-Alliance Members | Green Releaf: Designing for Resilience and Regeneration
Watch the full film here: https://youtu.be/w931oNAbBvs Over the past three years, Green Releaf Initiative has prototyped two projects that aimed to respond to and prevent disasters, in contexts of climate and conflict vulnerability in the Philippines. Green Releaf has been working with Permaculture as an approach to address food security, regenerative livelihood, and ecosystem restoration. They have a community-led approach, working with early adapters as grassroots permaculture leaders to train as multipliers. They also aim to highlight the traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) from the community, honouring their earth wisdom as key to the community's resilience. Featuring grassroots community leaders from areas affected by disasters and displacement where Green Releaf worked, this film begins to document the knowledge learned and practices implemented over time.
Re-Alliance Members | Almost Heaven Farms, Nepal - Youth in Permaculture group
With the COVID-19 pandemic restricting access to school in Nepal, one group of teenagers is taking their education into their own hands with a Permaculture diploma course. Re-Alliance member Almost Heaven Farms (permaculturenepal.com) is the setting of this short film made by young Permaculture practitioners. "We are a group of teenagers age 13-17 who have grown up on Almost Heaven Farms, a permaculture education centre in the hillside of the eastern Himalayas. We miss going to school and especially seeing our friends. But the problem is the solution. We need to be educated, we need to learn. It doesn’t look like the schools are going to open anytime soon. So the farm now becomes our full-time classroom." - Micah Zion
