Fertile Edges - participatory permaculture conversations

Permaculture magazine
Monday, 11th September 2017

Editor of Permaculture magazine, Maddy Harland, is planning a series of conversations around the UK based her new book, 'Fertile Edges: Regenerating Land, Culture and Hope'. Come and participate.

This year, 2017, is the 25th anniversary of Permaculture magazine. To celebrate, editor Maddy Harland is launching her new book, Fertile Edges: Regenerating Land, Culture and Hope.

Maddy interfaces practical permaculture with global transformation and deep ecology. Her writings about regenerative culture, earth restoration and social permaculture long appeared long before they became core ideas and practices. Her deep connection with the natural and human worlds and all that our differing cultures have to offer adds a beautiful dimension of heart to this book. 

Praise for the book

“Essential reading … signposts to sustain an activist’s heart … ” Rob Hopkins, co-founder of Transition Network.

“Strangely rollicking good fun!” John D. Liu, film maker and Founder of the Ecosystem Restoration Camps movement.
