I do not permaculture a designers manual with OrganicStudent's accusation that Bill Mollison is using "junk science.

While I may not agree with all of his thoughts, his basic concepts remain solidly grounded in facts that have been supported by successful field "experiments.

Monuments alter our perception of the possible, whether in the material realm, that of intellect or spirit, or all three. Ultimately, they influence the course of human history-and renew our hope.


Laid out and organized more like a textbook than a literary classic, bound not with cloth but unassuming cardboard, Bill Mollison's Permaculture, A Designer's Manual's appearance, though attractive, belies its monumental status.

There is no hype on the cover of this hefty underground best seller, no raves from critics at least on my version permaculture a designers manual, no reference to the New York Times or any other legitimizing authority.

The back cover has a picture of Mollison with his illustrator and photographer and the following definition: Permaculture Permanent Agriculture is the conscious design permaculture a designers manual maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.

It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelterand other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.
