Firewood: Sustainable and appropriate energy source
Available for download is David Holmgren’s essay “Permaculture: Integrating theory and practice”, written for the IPC7 newsletter in November of 2003. It describes permaculture, and discusses the importance of the movement, the value of granularity, and reaffirms the importance of reflective practice in ecology and permaculture.

This represents a moment of opportunity, but there remain roadblocks in the way.
