Permaculture Master Plan: Planting up the Global Garden

“The Permaculture Master Plan – Permaculture Centres Worldwide” is different not just in its broadness of vision and scope, but also, and I believe more crucially, in how it is being implemented.

This is a common phenomenon among the relatively big organizations; they get bigger by assimilating smaller projects they are supposedly helping out. Everything they do has an underlying urge to make the organization bigger, and aims and intentions become subservient to that imperative. In this way most big organizations, while they may have started out with the best of intentions, end up mirroring the ways of the system that caused the problems in the first place.
