“Sitting at our back doorsteps, all we need to live a good life lies about us. Sun, wind, people, buildings, stones, sea, birds and plants surround us. Cooperation with all these things brings harmony, opposition to them brings disaster and chaos.” ― Bill Mollison, Introduction to Permaculture

  1. That’s a great list, and a carefully considered disclaimer. This is, after all, *your* story, your blog, your adventure in living harmoniously with the ecosystem. It’s not intended as a teaching tool for anyone else; you’re generously sharing what you’ve taken the time and trouble to discover for yourself.

    1. My study brain hit a wall yesterday afternoon so I thought I might as well do something productive… indoors… too windy out. It was also a good exercise to sort the links in my currently overflowing Permaculture favourites folder.

  2. I find it hard to say ‘thank you’ in an adequate way. Your post has joined other links on my Internet Explorer favourites board and, whenever able, I shall work down each link to teach myself some of a subject I do want to explore . . .
