Which permaculture principle is always popping up in unlikely places?
There’s no such thing as waste
In my everyday life in the form of my building and gardening work. I’m a real fixer and will fix everything, if it cant be fixed there are a dozen things I’ll try before it ever sees a bin. And I compost all my organics
And in song form here!
Name your permie hero?
Sepp Holzer, Krameterhof
For his unforgiving attitude to water and soil health.
Sepp had a uphill struggle (for those in the know; excuse the pun) in his native Austria. Also my home land. Where attitudes particularly in rural places can be less than progressive. He was told it couldn’t be done but stuck to what he knew was right and built the most beautiful and productive hill top farm at altitude.
Masanubu Fukuoka for his book One Straw Revolution that teaches us you don’t have to be part of the ‘hair shirt brigade’ to follow permaculture principles and for attitude towards striking his own path
Best example of permaculture in action?
Tui Communtiy in New Zealand where I did my PDC many years ago. They support a large community of residents year round and provide hundreds of learning experiences to their visitors. A very inspiring place to visit
