  1. What Permaculture Isn’t, And Is – A Deeper Look Into Permaculture – Part 1 (PVP101) | Permaculture Voices.

    No time at the moment to respond in depth to your comments and ideas at the moment. We do greatly appreciate your works and your intentions. A few quick thoughts: – Permaculture, in any permutation, has not become mainstream, or anything close enough to it to give Mark Twain pause. – Permanant agriculture. Why was the meaning of the name changed? Agriculture being not ‘factory farming’, but the production of food and fiber for human use. Without it, humans could (and did) thrive in a non-degraded environment, but as Allan Savory points out, ‘Without agriculture we can have nothing else – no universities, no museums…’ Just to pick out a couple positive aspects of ‘civilization’. – Whatever name one gives to something, others will come along and change the name and/or the meaning of that name. Only the esoteric retains clear definitions. Nor can one control what groups embrace something. Some have said they don’t care for the ‘hippy’ verison or approach to permaculture. But, hey, even what constitutes a ‘hippy’ is largely in the eye of the beholder, except perhaps for extremes. Paul Wheaton was startled to hear he was labeled as a hippy by many: long hair, non-conventional thinking, and speach, and attire, wanting to start a new-fangled version of a ‘commune’ in some remote location that grows a lot of their own food (currently in progress)… yup, that ticks most or all the boxes for many. And he thinks of himself as anything but, more a geek as a software designer, than a hippy. -Growing up in a family of engineers, with engineer friends, in a college town where the engineering school was the main thing going… ‘systems’ thinking was not ever on their radar. Not even for the electrical engineers. – Only in the last blink of an eye has engineering begun to ‘think outside the box’. ‘Systems thinking’ still does NOT consider the full context nor the full range of effects that could/will be caused by any particular action. – Holistic Management does. But the single most valuable aspect of HM planning is this rule: ALWAYS assume you are wrong. With highest regards- RLM
