Would a Co-Op of permaculturists be considered a community? Non interconnected parcels of like minded people?
Something like the hundred mile diet but instead the hundred mile permaculture community?

sounds like "community" could be applied to something like that.  either way, though, it sounds like an interesting idea.  maybe even a good idea.

I think it would.  We might have to stretch our definitions of "community" a little in some places until things become just perfect!

Cooperate instead of compete.  Sounds like Permaculture Principle to me.  I think Mollison considered everybody who takes up Permaculture as part of a larger community.  I don't think he was thinking in terms of communes, not entirely anyway.

No, I don't think he was either and neither am I. A mix perhaps, cooperation is the key.
