Permaculture makes sense to me because it brings together, in one concept, all the things I have discovered in my life which offer a pathway to peaceful sustainable living, where we are encouraged to take responsibility for our own inputs and out puts in a caring sharing way. Not only that, it teaches us that we can consciously design our way, whilst piece by piece we lay aside destructive technologies and attitudes. It’s a direction, not a destination so it becomes your life because you are never done.

Being a part of the permaculture network has helped me learn from other like-minded people gifted often in ways I’m not and also allows me to share with others the gifts I have- be they in attitude, understanding, or material things.
