    Why are you here?

    My wife, Diane Sheffield and I are Licensed Acupuncturists in search of a new way to live. I am a former landscape contractor who specialized in native plants and food plants. I am also a practicing Permaculture Designer.

    "Permaculture is a design system for land and home which creates integrated sustainable environmentsfor all sentient beings."

    We live in a rural place where many people have relocated for similar reasons. Our area is brimming with energy to change the world and we are eager to get on with it. We are tired of the controls imposed on us by our totalitarian system and wish to participate in the discourse on how to change it.

    We believe that Permaculture combined with DQ's ideas is a very powerful strategy.

    Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?

    Permaculture (PC) is a design strategy for living based on what works for you where you live: i.e. site and client specific. PC is a strategy for designing human habitations on any scale that are respectful and inclusive of the community of life in your region.

    PC takes ideas from native cultures that know how to live in the world and so incorporates native and exotic foods and economics (management of one's house) in its design. PC is based on ethics adopted from native cultures: 1.take care of the Earth first and it (she) will take care of you. 2. take care of the people. 3. conserve resources. I recommend that everyone take a PC Design course and at least buy the design manual by Bill Mollison, Tagari Press, Australia and study it and apply it to your life. check the following web sites for more on PC: or just search for PC through your favorite search engine
