Hello folks,

I have listened to and read most of what I can find on the internet and permies forums in a search for elaborations on Smits' integrated methodology for planning his projects. I would love to learn many more details about this methodology, a methodology that includes his use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) to apply many different data sets to models that can be tweaked to show particular regions -- or even farmers -- what recipe (of crop species and layouts, etc.) has what economic, labor, and environmental implications. He appears to use the resulting 25-year plans to generate business plans.

My next attempt will be his talk with Peter Hirst at Permaculture Voices 1, "Permaculture in a half million-acre forest concession in Indonesia", in the hopes that he may reveal more about his methodology there.

Does anyone know if there are methodological details in that talk and/or what other places I can look for such details?

Thanks in advance!
