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.

Did you get the perfect thing?

My stuff is typically for about two hours.  

I was asked to give a 40 minute presentation on carbon footprint stuff - does that help?

Thanks for bumping this Paul!  I didn't get the "perfect" thing.  Loxley's and Elizabeth's were very nicely put together.  Elizabeth's covered the history and beginnings of permaculture.  Loxley's did something similar with additional slides on the ethics.

What I was dreaming for was a powerpoint that briefly introduced permaculture, went into the principles, touched a bit on design concepts and then maybe delved into different permaculture concepts like inputs/outputs of a chicken, guilds, zones, sector analysis, etc.  Maybe that's too much though.

If I had to build one, just thinking out loud, I'd do a bit of history and then introduce each Principle and fit as many common concepts into the applicable principles as possible.  Then by the time I get through all the principles, people will have a decent idea what it's all about.

I found a presentation I gave in 2010.   I can send you an odp file, but it wasn't pretty to begin with.  But I did attempt to copy all the text.   Maybe this helps?   I would think that my 72 bricks would be better and you can just use your favorite 20 bricks.

Wow, thanks Paul!  I think that for the audiences I'm likely to have, I'd want to massage your 2010 presentation to suit my needs.  I'm rewatching the 72 brick presentation, which I love!  It seems like it would be great as part of a larger conference where the people already know permaculture or are hearing different things from different people.  If I have just one hour in front of some level 0 or 1 people, hitting them with some bricks may not help as much as if I tailor a general permaculture presentation.  I think...

Toby Hemenway was present when I gave this presentation.   He liked it.  

As I look at the words in these slides, I can think of a lot of stuff I would do differently.   I think I would have to put a LOT of emphasis on "many schools of thought under the permaculture umbrella".

Maybe it would be good to touch onto 20 different bricks, giving each one about 10 to 30 seconds.
