Biomimicry Walk

Inspiration from nature that will solve the challenges of our time

Introduction

The miracle of nature is that whenever there has been a challenge, there is an organism that has found a way to conquer it. There are just over 8.7 million described plants and animals on Earth which are essentially individual science experiments, perpetually testing out new ways of doing things in order to find a better way. There is no doubt that we have much to learn from this 4.85 billion years of natural capital accumulation. Since humans live under the same laws of nature and under the same conditions, it makes sense that we learn from the inner workings of the natural world.

  1. When I booked for this walk, I did not know what biomimicry was, but someone else said you were great and that I should attend. I now understand the importance of the natural world, how much we rely upon it and how important it is to as you say "pause our daily lives and get back to basics".

    We all (my family) loved the way you presented the walk, as an exploration of Kloofendal Nature reserve. Your links to plants and animals that offer benefits to us, opened my eyes to the value of those common things. I loved your biomimicry cards that made us think.

    After the walk I made a conscious attempt to live more alined to nature. Thank you for your effort in hosting this event. You have another raving fan!

    1. Hi Margie, thank you for the comments!

      Biomimicry links humanity back to the natural world, a world that give us the basic requirements for life. I consider my biomimicry walks as a vital activity that everyone should attend, simply because resets our mind out of the "this is how it is done| mentality, and offers solutions to some of the most pressing challenges that we are all facing today.
