Have your Nature and Eat it Too
Dan Palmer has spend many years in the world of permaculture and has now decided he will share his knowledge by designing, writing and teaching.
Dan likes to say that permaculture is a way to “have your nature, and eat it too”!
Most of us are used to the idea that providing for human needs, such as our food, fuel and clothing is inherently destructive to natural systems. Permaculture draws insights from traditional cultures, from modern sciences and from personal observations of nature, to collect new and old ways of providing for human needs that are not only sustainable, but regenerative.
The aim is to create edible ecosystems. As a designer, writer and teacher, Dan aims to link the different components of each system together, in ecologically sensible way, to achieve high yields for low inputs while actually building fertility over successive seasons.
