I wrote a guest post at Farmer's Liz, Eight acres, because it was about a subject close to my heart. Permaculture endeavours to translate the natural environment into our culture, so that we don't live separate to the natural systems which sustain us.
The very fact we can breathe, is thanks to the natural systems which have been quietly working in the background. Permaculture and its principles, tries to interpret that system into our every day being. Whether we live on acreage, or whether we live urban, permaculture has a design solution for any location.
I apologise for getting this post up so late. Feel free to comment should you wish to discus our permaculture experience - or indeed, your own. I would very much like to hear about it.
