The nights are drawing in.
Autumn begins to harvest the land of leaves and green, as Winter waits in the wings…
The culture of the West, and its reliance on centralized government, has lost its way regarding Nature, seeing her only as a resource!
The madness of the policy of continued economic growth amid finite energy sources…and all to create more and more wealth for a very few, including themselves.

Permaculture is about working hand in hand with Nature and recognizing her sovereignty in all that lives.
