    NO, permaculture is NOT the same thing as the social/solidarity economy. Like Rhamis said: “there are probably parallels”, but permaculture is not an economic system, nor a political one, though there are permaculture precepts which can be applied to those systems. Permaculture is an ecological design science. It is designed to be a “PERMAnent agriCULTURE”. The three driving ethical tenents (1-Care of the Earth, 2-Care of People, 3-Return of Surplus unto those ends, i.e. principles 1 & 2) were first codified by Bill Mollison & David Holmgren in the book “Permaculture One”. These principles can be (and have been) *applied* to many things from economics, to politics, business models, social and even software engineering, but they began in sustainable agriculture. Permaculture is not a political nor an economic science, but the application of its principles pave the way for some very exciting advancements in those arenas.

    Rhamis makes so much sense in this podcast and has opened my eyes to even greater ramifications of the problems and solutions of today’s problems. I want to hear and see more of this man. And Sir thank you for the work you are doing.
