An episode from a great series of videos from Oregon State University in which all 12 principles are fitted into a landscape design. A handy overview to help you think about how all these different ideas might slot together.

I had to post this, Morven attended the 2020 winter PDC at Dragons. She is a creative soul, professional musician who has discovered a deep desire to re-connect with the earth, the soil, the human family.

I delivered this talk in Manchester in 2018 i think, for Olly Boon’s Roots project. It is a concise overview of permaculture for those who maybe are not familiar with it.

A nice overview from Geoff, drawing ideas together. Think about how you can use these ideas in your design project.

Mainly pictures of versions of the stove with other scene settings pictures as well to give context.
