Year of Living the Community: Week 14

Two consecutive days in the life of a sunflower on the roof of CCP HQ. 

It's that time of year, the looking back and looking ahead time. 

Looking back - we've begun! 

Looking ahead - so much yet to emerge! 

Since "learning to be present to the planet in a mutually beneficial manner" covers the whole of everything about living and learning, perhaps some narrowing down is in order for looking to the year ahead. 

The CCP Experiment Team sets a course for 2017 based on the principles of permaculture:

  1. observe and interact
  2. catch and store energy
  3. obtain a yield
  4. apply self-regulation and accept feedback
  5. use & value renewable resources and services
  6. produce no waste
  7. design from patterns to details
  8. integrate rather than segregate
  9. use small & slow solutions
  10. use & value diversity
  11. use edges & value the marginal
  12. creatively use & respond to change

This is the pattern, and following principle #7, we will let the details emerge. 


Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.
