MAKING PERMACULTURE STRONGER
Making Permaculture Stronger is a new project making waves in the global permaculture community. Starting with the idea that, like anything, permaculture has room for improvement, this project is opening a space for high-calibre collaborative inquiry into areas of permaculture that have the potential to be made even better. The initial focus has been a series of posts looking at the way permaculturalists define and understand design process. Initiated by Dan Palmer (founder of permablitz.net and VeryEdibleGardens.com), you can check it out and get involved here: www.MakingPermacultureStronger.net
