Permaculture as a Sustainable Way of Living: Experiencing the Principles through Farming Practices (2019)

Principal Supervisor(s): Dr. LI Ming Kenneth

Permaculture comes from “Permanent agriculture” and extends to “Permanent culture”. It is a design system for creating sustainable environments where human can live in harmony with nature. This project aims at promoting the understanding of the permaculture ethics and principles, and fostering the reflection of a sustainable way of living. A series of experiential learning activities related to farming have been organized for CUHK students and staff. For each activity, participants will engage in a briefing talk and hand-on farm works. They will be guided to reflect on their ways of living and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to permaculture.
