I think the idea is more in the spirit of permaculture than just buying plants.

I was excited because it was the first time I had attended one of the events. It was great being around other gardeners who shared my interest but after talking with them they were mostly very convential gardeners; pesticides, synthetic fertilizers etc. I was hoping to find some unique plants but it was mainly generic annuals like tomatoes, zuchini etc. No heirlooms. I broke the mold though and brought a bunch of true comfrey starts. They started with a quick lesson by building a small square foot gardening bed. As I was watching them measure everyting and making sure the measurements were exact and everying was linear. I was thinking, I bet their eyes would bleed if they saw my permaculture garden. Nothing is straight, no rows and hardly no 2 plants are alike, lol. It was a good time, I'm glad I went.
