Have you ever heard of permaculture? Permaculture is a set of design principles centered on whole systems thinking, utilizing the patterns in natural ecosystems.
When I heard about the permaculture principles for the first time, it felt like an epiphany. These are the principles I unconsciously follow in all my design processes. Implementing them helps me to check how meaningful my projects really are.
In 2018 I made my permaculture design certificate, an experience that changed my life. I'm eager to explore the intersections between permaculture and (product-) design and to teach others how we can make this world a better, greener place.
In 2018 I started my start-up URBANROOTS to help city people to start growing their own food and to provide them with the best, locally grown organic seeds.
What's next? I'm just startingt a permaculture project in Mallorca in the next few years, to be an example for a regenerative agriculture, a more sustainable way of living and to spread the word about the possibilities that permaculture holds for our current problems with climate change.
