These ethics have been challenging for us to incorporate in the day to day as we change our lives. The dominant culture and economic system of over-consumption is completely antithetical to this work, so we remind ourselves that our ability to practice these ethics is always in progress, and a consciousness about them is our first step towards embodying them.
- People Care – good food, access to clean water, safe shelter
- Earth Care – sustaining and healing, restorative
- Fair Share – surplus is put back into the system, nothing is wasted, how to understand what is enough, non-overconsumption
Design Care: When we design, are we meeting the other 3 ethics? These ethics are not defined, we can decide what they mean for us, but they are the measurables for the work we do.
How do/will permaculture ethics inform your work?
