Permaculture, a Beginners Guide
"Permaculture offers a radical approach to food production and urban renewal, water,energy and pollution. It integrates ecology, landscape, organic gardening, architecture andagro-forestry in creating a rich and sustainable way of living. It uses appropriatetechnology giving high yields for low energy inputs, achieving a resource of great diversityand stability. The design principles are equally applicable to both urban and rural dwellers"- Bill Mollison

The Industrial Cup Of Tea...
It’s become a cliche to say that we are living on the edge of eco-disaster. It’s also a realitywhich cannot be overstated. The ecology of Gaia is an interface between land (theGeosphere), air (the Atmosphere), water (the Hydrosphere) and life (the Biosphere), adelicate web of interconnections formed over millions of aeons on the verge of unravellingbefore our eyes... If the earth’s 4.5 billion year history could be compressed into 30 days,life in the form of simple bacteria appeared on the tenth day whilst the first vertebratescrawled onto the land around the twenty fifth. Homo sapiens (peoplekind) appeared atabout 1 minute to midnight on the thirtieth. The industrial revolution would have happenedwithin the last fraction of a second of that minute, yet within this instant, the face of theplanet has changed almost as much as within all the previous aeons.

The Permaculture Cup Of Tea...
The Eco-crisis is largely a consequence of the way that we in the West consume.Permaculture is about recognising this and taking responsibility for our actions and for ourplanet, and turning around our behaviours of consumption and exploitation so that we canrecreate a world without destruction and pollution. Where all can enjoy clean air, freshwater, good quality food, and meaningful work and leisure. Where we can repair the earthand move society towards a better relationship with the natural world of which we are all apart.
