Have you started planning for 2014 already? Not yet? Then the all new Permaculture calendar for 2014 might help. It serves many functions, as the permaculture principles say. Each month an inspirational photo cheerfully looks out to remind us of the wonderful permaculture projects that are already afoot in Australia and the world.
The moon planting guide has all you need to give your plants the extra advantage of being in sync with the cosmos. Four action icons have been developed which correlate with the phases of the moon. An icon appears as a daily reminder to indicate good times for certain garden actions making it all much simpler than looking up charts.
The monthly highlighting of just one permaculture principle helps give the month a focus for design thinking and deepens understanding, and memory, of the principles. An example is principle 10 in October ‘Use Small and Slow Solutions’, demonstrated by the calendar’s cover photo, it reminds us that even the smallest achievement is good, when the next generation urgently needs our nurturing as well.
All the messages are enticingly encouraging.

Bushfire has been a recurring theme in my work over nearly four decades and a central concern for anyone involved in permaculture design, teaching and practice in rural Australia, especially the south east of the continent, which has the dubious title of being the most bushfire prone region in the world.
