Permaculture for Renters

Over the years, I’ve often wondered at the unique and sometimes confusing situation of the urban-renter-beginner-permaculturist: trying to figure out how to utilize the ethics and principles of a framework originally conceived to develop areas thousands of acres in size, while often finding oneself without access to an area even hundreds of square feet in size.

While most permaculture teachers will tell you that the ethics and principles of permaculture are not limited to rural broadacre applications, the vast majority of literature on the subject (not to mention course curriculum) displays no uncertain preference for rolling food forested hills, cascading ponds, and just beyond, the beckoning vastness of Zone 5.

(My point of entry into this wonderful world, Permaculture Two, mostly referred to properties that were comparable in acreage to the more notable state parks in the area! Meanwhile, I was trying to figure out how to reconcile a desire to grow massive amounts of food with reality that I couldn’t dig up the lawn.)

  1. As the author of this post, it’d be great to see some more explicit credit…as it reads right now, it appears that it was written by somebody named Klint.

  2. Sorry, didn’t mean to sound like a jerk in that last comment, I looked at the site and realized that all of the posts looked like that. Some sort of mention of my name and what I’m up to might be nice though!

    All the best, ‘renegade futurist’ is a great meme to be pushing.



  3. Leonard – I included a link to your site (which of course is the whole point of the post, not to rip off your introduction, which doesn’t do anyone any good). Your name isn’t even on your site.

  4. Thank you so much for giving everyone an extremely wonderful chance to read in detail from this website. It’s always very excellent and also packed with a great time for me personally and my office fellow workers to search your web site really thrice in one week to read the new secrets you will have. And lastly, I’m so certainly satisfied concerning the tremendous opinions you serve. Some 1 ideas in this post are undoubtedly the best I have had.
