1) How would you personally go about mitigating the effects of previous RoundUp applications when transitioning a large farm to permaculture methods? Specifically, is there a length of time you personally would wait before planting or using various crops?
2) How valuable do you personally place social capital compared to other forms, like your time, natural/living capital (aka growies and critters) or financial capital? As an example, do you let neighbors take and remove hay without nutrient return as a gesture of good will (aka ++social capital) at the expense to your land's long term mineral health (--natural capital), defying the permaculture law of returns?
3) How much do you value a sense of privacy and sovereignty of your land? Do you let your neighbors walk up onto your land any time? What about locals who have perhaps casually used your land for years for activities such as fishing, firewood, golfing, or letting loose their dogs?
