It was pretty rad. I'm starting to see that his Regrarian Handbook is going to be Permaculture 2.0. It's being illustrated by Andrew Jeeves, who illustrated the PDM for Mollison. The difference is that this one is done with the assumption that everyone isn't already an engineer. This one will have meticulously detailed illustrations rendering the particulars of siting, constructing, and paying for earth works, etc. much more understandable. Keyline planning is a complicated and beautiful thing. I'm kind of in love with it right now.

And then there's Holistic Management and all the other great stuff wrapped into it.
I'm pretty excited. Who's excited?

Darren has an approach that can appeal to a lot of big ag farmers. Anything done to help convert big acres is a win.
