Permaculture Activist Newsletter
Permaculture is a design system to teach people to create human settlements that function in harmony with nature. Incorporating traditional knowledge, modern science, and the ecological patterns of the living world, permaculture design is applicable to farms, gardens, organizations, housing developments, towns and villages, or city neighborhoods.
The aim of this grassroots international movement is to liberate people everywhere to provide for their own and their communities' needs for food, energy, shelter, and a decent life without exploitation or pollution and from the smallest practical area of land.
"The ultimate end to a growth economy is the same as an analagous growth: cancer.
But for national economies, the victims are nature, soils, forests, people, water, and quality of life.
There is one, and only one, solution, and we have almost no time to try it.
We must turn all our resources to repairing the natural world,and train all our young people to help. They want to. We need to give them this last chance to create forests, soils, clean waters, clean energies, secure communities, stable regions, and to know how to do it from hands-on experience"
