PM & our readers support permaculture communities globally who do not have access to currency. These communities request key texts and ask to communicate with people who can mentor or volunteer. Click the ‘Donate’ button in the top right hand corner of www.permaculture.co.uk to contribute. See a result of these donations on page 38 OF PM93.

PM NEEDS YOU! There are a few things we would like in the pages of PM that you can help with: • Let us know what permaculture means to you. Send words, a photo and if you have it a video short (one to three minutes) that we can include online to: rozie@permaculture.co.uk • Can you recommend PM to a local store? It could be a Health Food Store or a Coffee Shop. Let’s help permaculture reach more people. Contact tony@permaculture.co.uk with suggestions and contact details • PM relies for the most part on a mix of articles from its readers and from established authors on permaculture and related subjects. If you would like to contribute for possible inclusion in a future issue of PM, please refer to our editorial and pictorial guidelines: www. permaculture.co.uk/submit_an_article • Could you view and share PM’s social media platforms for us today, it really does help: www.facebook.com/PermacultureMag www.instagram.com/permaculturemagazine www.pinterest.com/permaculturemag https://twitter.com/permacultureMag
