One thought on “Permaculture and Space Settlements”

  1. The Principles video is v. inspirational. I try to use some on my allotment, but I can see how that ends up being half-baked, because you need a holistic approach to the lay of the land, and most of that belongs to someone else. Starting from scratch somewhere out in the universe is sounding v. appealing.
