This is a video lesson from Michael's Permaculture Principles Video Course

In this lesson, Michael explains principle 11: Zones, Sectors, and Elevational Planning. Michael diagrams how you might lay out your homestead with zones in mind. He explains how the principle of zones can by applied to your yard, your house, or even an entire city. Michael explains the principle of sectors in terms of what energies are coming into your system from the outside and what influence they might have on your system. For example, water, wind, wildlife, sun, smells, sounds, safety, fire, and views. Michael describes the principle of elevational planning as how we take advantage of slope in the system and gravity so that the fruit rolls into the house. He talks about it in terms of water, temperature, and micro-climates.
