I just watched this presentation by Jenny Pell, and her take on urban permaculture. She has quite a wit.

Seattle Food Forest and Urban Permaculture

I really enjoyed her take on things. She is peak everything aware, and believes we are past the point of debate and need to take action now. Her presentation shows concrete examples of action she and others have already helped with. Things like getting laws changed in Seattle so you can raise more chickens, legalizing selling your backyard produce, and allowing food to be planted in medians.

I noticed only 900 people have seen this video. It deserves a lot more attention.

Lots of good stuff in this video. Not just permaculture principles, but also the discussion of public policy and how it can be influenced.
I'm looking forward to how the Beacon Food Forest will turn out. Right now it's still mostly a cool concept on paper.
For a different example how Seattle is involving community in food production, check out Rainer Beach Urban Farm.
