You can live a life in bal­ance with Nature. Nick Ritar, per­ma­cul­ture farmer, and edu­cator can teach us how.

In this talk at TEDx­Can­berra 2011, Nick Ritar chal­lenges us to over­come the fears we have built up as a soci­ety and to embrace a more sus­tain­able life­style; one embod­ied by per­ma­cul­ture.


Nick Ritar teaches people how to work with the nat­ural world so they can provide food, fibre and healthy hab­it­ats for them­selves and their com­munit­ies.

Nick is a per­ma­cul­ture edu­cator. He is recog­nized nation­ally as a lead­ing advoc­ate on how per­ma­cul­ture prin­ciples can con­trib­ute to our well­being through good design and regen­er­at­ive farm­ing.

With a back­ground in engin­eer­ing, fine art, and sys­tems archi­tec­ture, Nick is at the fore­front of the new gen­er­a­tion of per­ma­cul­ture prac­ti­tion­ers work­ing to restore land­scapes and cre­ate abund­ance in all envir­on­ments.
