Whether we look at people first, or animals, or plants, we know by the way we treat one how we behave towards the other. Introduction
The Government has announced a review of PPG7 - the planning policy guidance that deals with the countryside.
Permaculture is an ecological design system, aimed at everything concerning our daily lives. It uses natural systems as guidelines, wherever possible.
I don't think anybody has summarized what is happening on the face of the Earth. In order to change our ways, we seem to need to terrify ourselves, anticipating tidal waves and catastrophes.
As Simon Fairlie said in Low Impact Development, "Planning is boring".
In our turbulent and fast-changing world, the challenges of making sense of what's going on and living as good a life as possible often seem difficult.
Several books have been written about what permaculture is and how to do it.
Over the past few years permaculture design has been quietly having an impact on landscapes all over the world.
