Please join me in welcoming Jasmine Dale, author of Permaculture Design Companion




Read the book review here!

Jasmine Dale will be hanging out in the forums until October 18th answering questions and sharing her experiences with you all.

At the end of the week, we'll make a drawing for 4 lucky winners to win a copy of her book! From now until Friday, all new posts in the Permaculture Design forum are eligible to win.

To win, you must use a name that follows our naming policy and you must have your email set up to receive the Daily-ish email.

The winners will be notified by Purple Moosage and must respond within 24 hours. Only the winners who respond within that timeframe will receive their book. Watch for a PM, and a notice in this thread announcing the winners!


Please remember that we favour perennial discussion.  The threads you start will last beyond the event.  You don't need to use Jasmine Dale's  name to get her attention. We like these threads to be accessible to everyone, and some people may not post their experiences if the thread is directed to the author alone.

It feels like an important time to be effective in our projects, conserve our personal energy, and step up our agency. Following a design process is a powerful tool to achieve these outcomes. I'm interested in us all becoming as effective as we can be by unpacking the permaculture design process and exploring how to deepen our permaculture practice.

Welcome to Permies, Jasmine : )

Your book sounds really good.

I'm doing a 4 hour a month PDC, with a focus on a community design as well as one for my own land, so I will try to think up some design questions to ask on the forums this week.

Thanks Kate, applying the principles of thriving ecosystems to community design seems to me a massive resource, I love using the landscape survey as a metaphor for people designs eg warm microclimates might be situations/groupings we feel sheltered/supported; cold microclimates and frost pockets are situations we are best to watch out we don't get a shock or can't grow and thrive.

Hi everyone, one aspect of design I'm really interested in (and my book explores) is what happens when we combine different modes in our designing e.g. collecting objective data about wind/sun/shade and combining that with intuitive/creative/bodyometer information.As systems thinkers, I have come to see how our design practice really benefits from using lots of different parts of ourselves to capture a whole sense of a place and the people.

I love the subtitle of your book "A Practical Workbook for Integrating People and Places". Looking on Amazon part of the book description reads, "This unique resource combines analysis, creativity and inner work."    Would you explain a little on this inner work. Thanks



I, too, was looking on Amazon. Will there be a Kindle edition at some point?

The UK publishers do have the Permaculture Design Companion in ebook form, though no immediate plans to release it. However, the whole book is designed to be written in... this may not be apparrent... I made it a workbook deliberately as I love filling in such books myself, and also because I noticed through years of observing well intentioned students, sometimes you need a benevolent taskmaster to get things done and completed. So the book in paper form is designed to help (force!) you to keep chugging on step by step, rigorously applying permaculture tools and principles along the way, writing in your own experience on each page as you apply the exercises. My wish, is that the books are treasured memories and a useful reference, full of the reader's own process.



ps Amazon does take the lion's share of a book sale, so for books in general and mine specifically, it helps us to buy it off the smaller outlets: Chelsea Green US, my own website wwwbeingsomewhere.net and Permanent Publications UK..just a thought, not an order!

Thank you Luz, its the harvest of over 10,000 interactions with about a 1000 people over a ten year span of teaching  and learning about permculture for urban and rural settings. During this time I was fortunate to also have my own 9 acres, denuded by over grazing and now very biodiverse and resilient to weather, disease and self reliant in food, water and hydro electric. My wish is that all I learnt from the land, beings and people is harvested and helps other people. Permaculture has been a constant companion, giving me confidence and the tools to steward the land and have the pleasure of witnessing how eager land is to respond to simple design and sensitivity to biodiversity.

Our land in 2009



Abundant in 2017

Never too late! Good to process the sadness and then onwards and upwards, all that's gone before has value when a new path appears.

This is very helpful, Jasmine! Yes, I can see the value of having a paper copy of the book. If I don't win it, I will plan to buy one. I need all the help I can get!

Trying to think of a post you can put in the Permaculture Design forum so you are entered in the drawing? There's a student doing a survey Research Survey on issues affecting permaculture and it's in this forum, and your responses to him will count! Help him out, and you are entered, Yay, function stacking! :D

I'm stoked to be a winner and really looking forward to the book. Thanks for all that you do, Jasmine. That aerial photo says it all and based on the little bit of time I spent in Pembrokeshire many years ago, I hope your neighbours are impressed enough by the results to start spreading the love.
