Hello Marianne,

I looked over the brief for the book and I'm excited to read it.

Understanding the anthropological aspects and broad interactions with our environment is paramount to creating a more harmonious, healthier world. Nothing like reading about this from people with first hand experience!

Welcome to permies!

Hi Marianne! I did my best to write about my (sub)urban permaculture experiments. I hope you will have a look at my topic.

Hi, I am very happy to see you on this forum. I am hoping to engage in a project relevant to civic ecology. Question, how much experience or expertise would you suggest one has before embarking on such an effort...are the mechanics something that can be learned as one goes along?

Marianne: Welcome to the forum. The idea of 'Civil Ecology' is new to me, so I did some reading, posted my take on a new vocabulary term, and wonder "Where Do We Go From Here?"

So I ran the winner picker app in the forum software and we have 1 winner.

Josheph Lofthouse


Congratulations Joseph!

I sent you an email to ask for the email address of the person that first referred you to Permies.com. That person (if qualified) will also get a copy of the book and a permies care package.
