This little challenge is subtle but powerful – how much do you know about the water that flows by where you live? How much do you know about where it comes from, and where it flows to?
Once, our waterways were intrinsic to our communities’ health – on a practical, day-to-day basis. Water is life, after all.
To take on this simple Permaculture Living 2020 challenge, you’ll start by re-learning about your waterways. No matter how urban your local ‘hood is, we can deepen our sense of connection to place, and all that flows from that.
Learning your local waterways might involve maps, some internet research, or your feet, and a commitment of time – can you walk your local waterway (or it’s path, if it’s underground for some sections) for an afternoon, or a day?
