“The brilliance of permaculture is not that it creates abundance through ethical and creative designs based on nature’s patterns. It’s that it allows us to access our own innate intelligence to do this vital work. It is essential that our creative genius is foregrounded – so that our places and our people and all non-human others once again flourish.”
