The Children in Permaculture Manual
This book was the result of an intensive collaboration during the three years of the Erasmus plus funded project, “Children in Permaculture”, which brought together formal and non-formal educators and permaculturists from 5 countries and 7 organisations!
I was one of the three co-authors – together with Lusi Alderslowe and Gaye Amus, but the book was the fruit of many hours of discussion and sharing with all of the members of the CIP team.
Here are some of the reviews:
“Earth care, People care and Fair share can serve as principles for all seasons and all professions. If incorporated into the lives of enough children, and the lives of the adults who care for them, this philosophy can change the world.”
— Richard Louv, author of “Vitamin N,” “The Nature Principle,” and “Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder.”
“Making use of this book is a great way to start taking learning outdoors. The ‘hidden potential’ in the outdoors should be placed into the hands of conscious educators to a much larger extent. There it can provide a foundation for developing reflective learners and a paradigm for critical thinking and knowledge in action, not only in Europe but all over the globe. This is a must-read for anyone wanting to do permaculture with children because a muddy child is a happy child in an affective and cognitive way! I wish everyone an enjoyable, playful and fruitful time outdoors with this book.”
-Dr. (Fil lic) Anders Szczepanski, author of Outdoor Education, Assistant Professor of Outdoor Education, Spetsa Company at University Holding, Linköping University Sweden.
“Brimming with practical examples of how to support children in connecting with themselves, each other and the growing cycle. This handbook illustrates the scope of permaculture that is relevant for children, using gardening as an entry point into wider issues of fairness and connection. Written with such a deep sense of care and consideration for the future generations, it is invaluable for parents and educators alike.”
– Looby Macnamara, author of People and Permaculture, and 7 Ways to Think Differently, and co-founder of Cultural Emergence project.
