I am a midwife and mother of two boys (the youngest being born at the end of the course). Permaculture means a lot to me. Much more than a way to garden efficiently. I see it as a kind of ideology that teaches how to respect and live with others, with the animals and nature/earth. It links all aspects of life and gives concrete clues to how to approach it. It gives hope for the future. Permaculture just makes sense! Thanks to all my great teachers!
