Well anyone that is bored can read another thread. When the concept of Permaculture came out in 78′ we all laughed our asses off because it was a repackaged idea for gardening that most productive farming/gardening cultures had used from the beginning of time. Organic Farming and Gardening magazine had been producing articles since 1942 preaching the same methodology. There was some book out that became popular about farming in Asia using the same methods, duck pop in the rice paddies, blah blah blah. Anyone can use new nomenclature for old stuff so it appeals to new generations. It was the beginning of the ecological environmental science boom and it was gardening using the new language of academia.

Not to belittle the outcome of permaculture, every garden is a micro environment that needs to be adjusted to it’s own specific requirements. Sun, water, soil, slope, temps.
