I’m currently learning about Permaculture Design on an online course provided by Oregon State University. It’s interesting revisitng what I know about garden and landscape design from this new perspective, and whilst a lot of the Permaculture approach has many similarities with traditional landscape design, there are some interesting new angles and ideas which enlarge the scope and address some fundamental issues like the impacts of climate change and ‘going with nature’. The course provides some fascinating links to many additional resources and I was delighted to look at one or two ‘musical takes’ on some of Permaculture’s principles by a guy called Charlie McGee. Here’s  an example (there are a number of others on Youtube) which I particularly love…all about embracing change..enjoy!
