I'm a bit of a details person, the one who watches a movie and can't help but be distracted by the little things that are incorrect.
William - can you clarify separation vs integration?
This was it, i like it a lot and in my opinion you should keep it.

Those logos are great. I really like how you integrated things. The fact that you took the swooshes out also makes me happy.
The only constructive criticism I have is
a) The permies font is grainy (I suppose you just copied it over - would need to get a hold of the original to do a good font swap) -- This is easily fixed.
b) The super P in the second (green) logo isn't the same size as the "ermies" which creates a bit of a jarring effect visually. That might be able to be fixed, but the standing figure might have to be made bigger or the "ermies" made smaller to create the effect of continuity between the two font sizes.
I am fond of cooper for this context, less "industrial". My Dad used to own a sign company specializing in hand crafted wooden signs. Cooper was by far the most attractive and popular font.

ps: I can put some more work into it, maybe make the super p stand out a bit and get a better font if people want to go in this direction.
Soften the "P". It is still too "industrial". Looks like Rosy the riveter to me! It's a different war we are fighting. That's why I suggested "Cooper" above. Same basic design, but the lettering has rounded edges. It is a super power, but instead of destruction of the enemy with industry, regenerating the land by nature. Get it?

I think you could just not have a chin and have the person have a long neck, and it would be a little simpler and still look good and realisitic.
Like this? What do you think?

And then Cassie and lots of other folks spent months coming up with a cool social media icon for us:
I really like the social media icon. Sorta says a superhero that wears overalls and the "P" would be for "Permaculture" or "Permies".
So then the question came up for what would be the richer logo on the forums to match the new superhero icon?
So I turned to Alexander. The first drawing he sent looked male to me, but he said it was a genderless person. I then asked for a female version and what you see now is the female.
I like what Alexander came up with. But I'm open to other ideas. Andybody wanna try their hand at a logo that matches our new social media icon?
If I'd had more time, I would have written a shorter letter. -T.S. Eliot such a short, tiny ad:
