May I ask where the article is being published? How is the Spanish-language permaculture world? I see permaculture gardens on instagram with #hashtags in Spanish sometimes.
Hey man. Well I think things are starting to move, not that much in Spain, but mostly in some countries in South America, but good info about permaculture in spanish is still quite hard to find compared to english info. That's why I've recently created a forum, kind of inspired in permies (not even close, i'm not Paul Wheaton...) but I hope the forum will make people increase their interest and knowledge on permaculture and self-sufficience. What I'm translating right now is a video of Geoff Lawton about creating food forests the permaculture way, a gold mine of information that everyone should watch, but for the moment it's only in english. I don't mean to do spam, but you can visit my forum here: www.autosuficientes.net, and if you know any spanish speakers who could be interested in participating, please let them know!
I checked out your forums at www.autosuficientes.net , looks great!
I see you are just getting started and I wish you much luck!
I never saw that Bill Mollison quote about Permaculture / Hammocks before.
Muchas gracias Cris! Hopefully one day it will become a good tool for people who want to live this way.
Hmm I'm sure I heard that phrase about hammocks, and I've always thought it was from Bill Mollison, but now that you say it I've googled it and I find nothing similar... Anyway, even if he didn't say it I'm sure he loves hammock time, and permaculture was just a way to maximize it

Hey Jorge. I don't know if this is what you need, but I guess the quote refers to how to maximize our spare time, or the time we can rest on a hammock. Sorry if it is obvious, but a good, neutral and non-literal translation would be: "¿Cómo maximizar nuestro tiempo de ocio?".
