Permaculture Principles – thinking tools for an era of change

This is a website built around the work of one of the original Permaculture founders David Holmgren.    I think this provides a lot of good pointers, but I’ll admit I find most of permaculture to be more about self promotion than about getting us to live more in tune with our world.  Appreciating nature in it’s undisturbed glory is incredibly valuable, and once we, or those before us, stick our hands into it we are on a journey, and I don’t imagine a way back.  But that’s ok,  I can minimize the use of chemicals and the waste my family generates, I can rebuild soil for particular needs, I can even build habitat that supports a whole neighborhood…  In the end, we must develop practices that reflects our location in time and space…

I’m a UC Master Gardener with a huge interest in growing my own food, beekeeping, medicinal herbs and living sustainably. I also have a passion to share these journeys with like minded souls. I work with many off site communities and manage an educational organization and two outdoor learning facilities.
