Here, the Bullock brothers discuss their patch of land on Orcas Island, WA, and show what they did with it.
Those of you who have land, or are thinking of buying land, for permaculture may find their process of thought illuminating (though every patch is different). I thought this quote was interesting:
“A kind of a common premise in ecology certainly, and in permaculture as well, is that the edge, where two different distinct environments meet, is the richest interface, whether it’s between forest and field, whether it’s between land and sea, an estuary, and most major cities of the United States exist in such places. Port towns. Humans basically lived in wetland edges.”
We’re never bored, and there’s plenty to eat.
Not a bad life!
