Day 3: the GOBRADIME Design Process
I first wrote about GOBRADIME in Food Not Lawns, How to Turn Your Yard into a Garden and Your Neighborhood into a Community (2006, Chelsea Green), and have been using the process ever since.
GOBRADIME helps you improve your skillset, obtain a yield, and increase your capacity for both personal and ecological sustainability.
If you're unfamiliar with GOBRADIME, read this article as an intro.
Because it's a design formula that can be used to organize any project, on every scale, I have found it useful to create curricula for online courses:
In the Emotional Permaculture mini-course, we learn about GOBRADIME on day 3 and use it to think through the design of our inner landscapes.
In the Design Your Daily Practice 10-day Bliss Blitz, we spend a day on each step of GOBRADIME, and use it to create healthy habits in our daily lives.
In fact, GOBRADIME is the backbone of the Permaculture Design Studio that the Permaculture Women's Guild certification course uses, to walk students step by step through the process.
GOBRADIME works. It's awesome. And yes, you guessed it:
You can use GOBRADIME to design a mutually-beneficial, surplus-sharing, income-producing plan, and that's what today's worksheet is all about!
