Check out this amazing natural system that attracts fish from the sea and helps the land retain vital nutrients at the same time.  Some of the ponds have been in operation for hundreds of years!  Have you ever raised fish?  What do you think about the use of water in this landscape?

At a planned retail of $1.7 million, it's not the most practical of commuter cars, but it runs on salt water!  What do you think of this concept vehicle?

Lots to love about this young man's approach to agriculture as a business.  Also neat to hear about his journey to agro-entrepreneurship.  What do you think of his vision for growing food?

fostering a lasting culture of social sustainability through education, innovation, and conversation
Introduction
Permaculture as a practice has largely been relegated to the gardening section of the bookstore, but the truth is that the ideas contained within permaculture are a complete approach to problem-solving which can also be applied to social sustainability.

The permaCulture is a place for people to discuss ways in which to make our world a more harmonious and balanced place which nurtures and protects all its inhabitants.  
Circle this page if you're interested in:
  • alternative energy
  • sustainable business models
  • permaculture definitions and ideas
  • permaculture technique tutorials
  • learning traditional crafts
  • book reviews on sustainability topics
  • homesteading
  • innovative technologies and ideas
  • meeting other like-minded individuals
  • profiles of people and orgs who think permaCulturally
  • and more!
The permaCulture is a community-driven resource started in the hope of both connecting people who are trying to live sustainable lives and promoting a social ethos which supports and cultivates those trying to live in harmony with our planet.  

The permaCulture is managed by Kathryn Brown.  If you have a question you'd like answered or an article or event you'd like posted, you can contact her via her main Google+ page (http://gplus.to/kebiana) or by posting privately to The permaCulture.

If you're already a practitioner and would like to share images of your permaCultural projects, post those images publicly to your profile and tag this page.  There is a growing and committed group of people here happy to answer questions, offer advice, discuss ideas of radical sustainability, and share in your successes (and lessons too!).
