That's the title of an article that just appeared in my email inbox. I subscribe to Acres, U.S.A. magazine, and they send me informative emails once in a while. I'm not trying to sell any subscriptions here, I just want to share the link to the article because I believe it contains useful information aligned with permaculture practices. After all, Permies is about discussion and sharing helpful information right? The article is authored by Jeff Poppen, a local farmer here in Tennessee where I reside, and I've watched him on public TV back when I had a TV, and bought his delicious produce in local stores as well, so when I saw that the article was by him, my interest perked up, so I clicked the link and read the article. It's really great, and echoes what I've read in many books and what Permies' own Dr. Redhawk writes about in his most awesome soil threads. It's a short article, easy to read, but I found it to be a great summary of permanent agriculture and it warmed my heart. Here's the link:

What a sweet xmas gift James!   I agree it's heartwarming.   We all are familiar with the principles but his writing style is almost poetic, and gentle.
Thank you - and happy holidays - mmmwah!
