If you are new to permaculture - or even if you aren't this lecture is a fabulous place to start.
Bill Mollison, considered the 'father' of permaculture, recognized a need to educate people of the use of old and new ideas to create sustainable communities. ( I realize that most of you know who Bill Mollison is but there may be new people who are not familiar with his name).
I am just so ecstatic to have found this lecture series.
In this lecture he talks about:
What is permaculture?
What sustainable means in the context of permaculture.
Growing food if you live in the city.
How to make money in a sustainable manner.
What makes a good/bad design.
I agree, I learned first from him ..my introduction to permaculture was "introduction to permaculture" in the 70's..and I've gobbled up whatever I could find in writing since. Read his phamplets and lectures earlier on and they are very helpful.

Is that the one on Home gardens? I sent them an email letting them know it didn't work and they told me it worked fine for them.

Yeah - that's the one. I wrote them an e-mail too and got a really cryptic reply and a request for a donation. I did offer them money if they'd repost the episode, but got an even more cryptic one about how the video was shot years ago and how a lot had changed since then. All the same, I have offered a donation anyway, but find the situation rather strange!
