Permaculturists and other environmentalists warn of global destruction
unless we learn to live with the Earth rather than
continuing to prey upon her. Permaculture trusts that
the Earth shows us solutions to halt the destruction of the
biosphere while sustaining ourselves in wholesome and

We have added Plant
Health and Imbalance Symptoms by Jim Fruth to
our body of documents free for
non-commercial download and further distribution. This set
of tables describing
possible causes of atypical plant appearances, reflects a
increased emphasis on gardening,
in addition to permaculture, in our publications. We are
re-editing and enlarging
most of our gardening databases and expect to have
several to announce by the end of this year. – Dan Hemenway

Permaculture Information Net
- The Permaculture Information Net is a new
feature of this web site intended to encourage visitors to
contribute to the information
available to the permaculture community. We are not soliciting
opinions. Rather, we are encouraging people to share documented
may also share your perplexities. You are invited to submit them to
us for consideration for posting on this site. These should be
questions not readily answerable by commonly available
publications, related to permaculture design, and of general
application. For example, do not submit a question such as How
do I figure the right amount of ventilation for a solar
greenhouse. The answer is more or less common knowledge.
Contributors who submit documented facts will receive a copy of all
the replies that we regard as useful. If we resolve a question, the
material will also be used in an article in our journal and/or as
supplemental data on our web page. We will post relevant replies on
this site, as well, with credit. I reserve the right to edit them.
At some point, we will expand the acceptable topics to design
strategies as well as facts. For Mother Earth, Dan Hemenway
