We live at a confluence in history. Peak oil and climate change have arrived at the same time. Unfortunately our leaders have been slow to act and we are not ready. Permaculture is a method of using land and resources in ways that sustain the environment while providing economic and lifestyle benefits to individuals and communities. It is one of the fastest growing environmental moivements on the planet.
