Cob house party

Over twenty of us attended Warren Brush’s two-week course at the German ashram in Brombachtal, near Frankfurt; and we came away staggering under the weight of the information which deluged upon us, not to mention the excellent food that the ashram provided.

I shall not make the mistake of attempting to define permaculture!  Warren referred to it as a conscious design science, involving the need to think about the unborn – what are we going to leave them?

What I am going to do is to apply permaculture in my own garden.  Let’s see if all those trees, and the lawn that takes so much time to mow, can be turned into a food forest!

Psst!  Want to know more about chinampa?
