The PRI are very happy to announce a game changing partnership. Continually looking for ways to spread its brand of permaculture to the mainstream, the PRI has been tirelessly working on strategic partnerships to extend its influence. Such an amazing opportunity has just been struck between The PRI, McDonalds, BP and Starbucks. The PRI will begin the design of a multidimensional farm that will produce coffee, biofuels, beef and potatoes to service the basic needs of the partner corporations. The farm will also serve as a demonstration and education center running PDCs as well as specialty workshops and practical classes focused on the projects happening on the farm. Other potential projects being considered are drive-thru PDCs, Extra Value and Supersized PDCs, and Permaculture Latte of the Day.
The brilliance of permaculture is that the basic design strategies can be used worldwide with just the species and climate-specific features being changed. All four organizations were in agreement about how excited they all are and the sky is truly the limit when one considers the possibilities that can arise.
When asked about the potential for negative feedback by partnering with such massive corporations, Geoff Lawton was quoted as saying “A lot of permaculturists get nervous when you talk about large sums of money, but it doesn’t concern me one bit. I’ve never had an issue applying the third ethic, and I love coffee.”
Stay tuned for updates on what will prove to be an amazing ongoing relationship
for world domination.
