Conference Topic –  Sustainability, Resilience and Subsistence – The Permaculture Way!

At Trinity House, the Catholic Worker house in the South Valley of Albuquerque, we aspire to live as sustainably as possible while reducing our consumption of unnecessary ‘commodities’ by embracing the permaculture principle of Care of the Earth, Care of People and Sharing (and setting limits to consumption). In addition to sharing about how we are doing this on the small 1/3 acre which we ‘steward’, I will introduce the concept of the Commons, vernacular culture and subsistence, which is simply the ability to live a sustainable life outside of the market order. Be prepared to be challenged!
