​​Some b ooks and tools that have helped us on our Permaculture journey  ​​
​"Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.”
 (Bill Mollison) 

For years, we were told that Permaculture was just a gardening toolkit, for marginal people.

Our journey began most unusually with the meeting  of an incredible man, Xavier Mathias. He kindly received us on his property called 'Le Champ de Pagaille" near Chedigny in central France.

We walked around his property, dazzed at how he had designed it, the logic and wonderfull simplicity of his thinking. We had just gotten our Organic certificate and he kindly pointed out that it was "great" but only the first step.He talked briefly about Permaculture; knowing full well we'd research right away.

What hadn't sunken in was the human dimention of Permaculture that so many people sadly don't get to experience as they look only at a bottom line and not the bigger picture.  
"Farming is not just for growing crops, it is for the cultivation of human beings"
