GENERAL NEWS

The next stage of the Network is to introduce the concept of Permacultural Peace Gardens into Schools, Colleges, even Universities. The most urgent need is to bring this concept into schools in Britain and across the World.

Many urbanised children are deprived of any opportunity to help design and build a Peace Garden, or experiencing the joy of seeing something they have planted grow and flourish.

This alienation from Nature as a source of all life can result in many psychological problems for the young when true spiritual values evolving out of this natural empathy are missing from their lives.

If you agree, why not try to introduce the idea to your local school?
