Are there non-agrarian uses of land in permaculture. My example was a quarry or gravel pit used responsibly. Gravel for roads or hydroponics and a quarry for let's say mill stones for grinding grain. If I have a property that is unsuitable for farming would my responsible harvest of stone be considered permaculture like? I'm sure there are other examples that might fall into this category, the likely hood that everything I need is from my property is unfortunately a romantic notion I have of being totaly independent.

Creature comforts, repairs, medical issues all things that go beyond what I pigeon hole as permaculture. For me community is important and I see many places for people without dirt under their fingernails in a permaculture community.
Just because one is working on a thumbnail rather than a large frescoe dosn't mean that their efforts are insignificant.

In it, there's room for lots of different folks, with lots of different passions and skills.
