Cuts for grapes are 3" long and I space 4 cuts around the vine equally.

It seems that it had been decreasing until 2008, then relatively stable followed by a slight rise since 2011 and a surprising jump at the beginning of 2016..
It's also interesting to see that the graph follows the seasons, it's always lowest in December and highest in April, when many people go out to garden.
There is a huge hippie/green vibe to it in my experience and I have to say I am struggling with this too. I go to very few permie events. I am not an activist, greenie or anything even close to it. I work in the corporate world and live the life of a farmer in the middle of conventional farmers. In my experience most "main stream" people shy away from permaculture because they don't have the green mindset and some permies are lecturing a different lifestyle.
