Edible Earth: in search of Permaculture
July 2007, Issue 402
Amidst all the fashionable frenzy about global warming and the end of the world as we know it, we take a calm look at one of the more positive options for a durable, sustainable future. No, not a deep-green gardening cult, the lifestle of Siberia or an extreme haircut; permaculture proposes that we make our peace with naure, abandon misplaced faith in the technological fix and connect through ‘intelligent design’ to a freshly Edible Earth. *NI* co-editor *David Ransom* avoids the airmiles and becomes and innocent at home in Britain. He steps onto unfamiliar territory in his own backyard and explores what some remarkable people are doing to reshape the ugly patterns of unjust, unsustainable consumption.
