What is permaculture, anyway

There seems to be a battle among permaculture designers over the nature of permaculture. Why, who knows or cares. Permaculture is a nature-inspired, holistic design system that draws upon current technologies and ancient roots to create sustainable human environments.

Permaculture was originally intended to grow food in a manner that did not harm the earth,as industrial agricultural system did and are still doing, but to nourish and replenish it.

I apply my design skills to creating community gardens, school gardens and anyone who wants to grow food in a sustainable manner.

I also apply the skills to create the invisible structure, committees, worker coops and so on. 

I believe societies and individuals are living a false story, one they have all agreed upon, knowingly or not. As a storyteller and gardener I am planting a new story. Want to help?
