Solutions through permaculture
Permaculture design brings our lives back into
participation with the Earth.
Permaculturists and other environmentalists warn of global destruction unless
we learn to live with the Earth rather than continuing to prey
Permaculture trusts that the Earth shows us solutions to halt
the destruction of the biosphere
while sustaining ourselves in wholesome and fulfilling ways.

Net - The
Permaculture Information Net is a new feature of this web site
intended to encourage visitors to contribute to the
information available to the permaculture community. We are
not soliciting opinions. Rather, we are encouraging people to
share documented facts.
You may also
share your perplexities. You are invited to submit them to
us for consideration for posting on this site. These should
be questions not readily
answerable by commonly available publications, related to
permaculture design, and of general application. For
example, do not submit a question such as
How do I figure the right amount of ventilation for a solar
greenhouse. The answer is more or less common knowledge.
submit documented facts will receive a copy of all the
replies that we regard as useful. If we resolve a question,
the material will also be used
in an article in our journal and/or as supplemental data on
our web page. We will post relevant replies on this site, as
well, with credit. I reserve the right to edit them.
At some point, we will expand the acceptable topics to
design strategies as well as facts. For Mother Earth, Dan
