Is there a Permaculture 101 presentation out there that we can use/borrow for community enrichment?

I've been in a couple situations where IF I had a short powerpoint, I could get up in front of 20 people and do a talk on permaculture.  I am not PDC certified, nor am I an expert.  But I do think that with a decent slide show, I could do a tolerable job of informing others about permaculture practices and why they might want to join the movement.  Local library, garden center lunch & learn event, etc

Is there something out there already that is available for use?

I could put a crude one together but it wouldn't look pretty, it may not be effective and as an untrained permaculture enthusiast I may get some of the messaging wrong.

Permaculture artisans spend lots of time and money making wonderful presentations but their intellectual capital shouldn't be mine to latch onto.  Unless it's with their permission of course.

We could collaborate as a group to build one.  Like what Loxley shared Images of the Edge Effect

Or maybe the overworked Permies folks could assemble one that has subtle ways of directing the audience to Permies.com.  I realize it probably wouldn't make lots of money but it would be a "standard" training document that us permaculture foot soldiers can use to infect more brains with permaculture.

I have a super simple and effective one I use for "History of Permaculture" module, it's a great intro to where permaculture came from. Does not include techniques or strategies, so might not be geared toward an audience that is looking for tips or tricks, like a Masters Gardeners club.

I use Google Slides, here is the link:

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1RT9e0xER-AucNsa2RYG6-yaPzFutdDLeTYx_A2U6poI/edit?usp=drivesdk

Should also be able to see speaker notes.

Please give credit! Thanks!

Thanks Elizabeth!  Let's keep it going.  Does anyone else have a presentation to share?  Simple is fine.  The more tools we have to infect more brains with permaculture, the better

*applause* Great job Elizabeth. I love your collection of Permaculture definition quotes. I find that it's hard to find a concise single quote that "thunks" as a 1 - 2 sentence definition for permaculture.
I too have been collecting definitions of permaculture by the various authors & practitioners. The way I've been experimenting with presenting this is by offering a different definition at the beginning of each class.
