Permaculture magazine

We have long been warned that with the advent of “smart” phones, tablets, Ipads, etc. the days of printed magazines and books are numbered. It is true, there is so much information available online these days. We may be truly heading for a “paper-less” society, but when we flick the pages of a well produced magazine or a good book it sounds different and feels different, too.
pcm79That’s how we feel when we read through the Permaculture magazine and Permaculture Activist magazine. It is not just the ideas and stories (or “contents, you may say), but the feel and “vibe”. That they are put together with lots of love and enthusiasm is tangible. The spring 2014 issue of the Permaculture magazine, published by the team in the UK, is no different. From cover to cover, it is “packed with informative articles, readers solutions, DIY designs, news, reviews, book, tool and product reviews, letters, classifieds and details of a wide range of related courses”. Some of them are available online for free, but it is worth getting a whole magazine, as Maddy Harland’s excellent editorial that discusses amongst other things, David Holmgren’s recent essay “Crash on Demand“, is available on the PDF version.

…Is David a ‘Collapsnik’ actively encouraging a crash to avert an even greater global disaster, namely runaway climate change? Or is he simply commentating on what the crash may look like if it occurs, and how positive environmental movements (like permaculture and transition) can engage others in constructive resilience building strategies?…

You can also subscribe direct and all the subscription options here and an “app” is available here for you, if you are inclined to get the mag on your phones and pads.

  1. Hello,
    I have a property in central victoriia.
    It is a mud cottage with much bush attached and workable land around it too.
    I would like to swap six months rent for Petrie gardening for the rent or and six months rent. The future rentals can be very low in cost or free, depending on ‘caretaker’ gardening ( very little work, mostly the security of an honest presence)
    I’m hoping you have a classified section l can place an add for this in
    Kehry 🙂
