Food for crowded populations in an uncertain and compromised future: session outcomes

In this session, Rosemary Morrow and Marguerite Kahrl shared their experiences of refugees and permaculture – giving the key summary that permaculture with refugees has important outcomes for the refugees and for the future of mass migration and shortage of labour with an elderly farm population – and a detailed case study by Marguerite.

Actions, themes, and ideas to take forward were summarised as:

  • Changes in refugee policies are necessary
  • Refugees are keen and able to take permaculture into rural situations
  • Teaching permaculture to refugees is vitally necessary and also has valuable outcomes for the host population.
