We discovered a great sitcom produced by the BBC called "Good Neighbors" I suppose it is a form of permaculture in the middle of suburbia. Check it out if haven't already seen it. We got it at the library...movies for the cheap and lazy

In one of the episodes the couple are trying to get some materials for their garden (possibly mulch, I can't remember) and one of them says to a person "We need your help, we're self-sufficient."

I totally share this belief. It helps bring back feelings of community and fosters friendships too
