CO-FOUNDER AND EDITOR

Maddy Harland is the co-founder and editor of Permaculture magazine and author of Fertile Edges - Regenerating the land, culture and hope.

My main interests are beekeeping, forest gardening, being on the land, wild places.

Permaculture for me is more than an ecological design system, for me it is a way of seeing and understanding the world as a whole and responding to it. It is a way of life.

In 2018, I was offered £10,000 to start a permaculture award. I could decide the criteria and how to give the money away, what I couldn’t do was pocket any of the cash for the set up and admin work. Within months the Permaculture Magazine Prize had attracted another £15,000 that included a £5,000 Youth in Permaculture Prize for outstanding people under 25, attracted judges from all over the world, and the Permaculture Magazine team and myself had set up the basic framework. By 2019, the Prizes had become £30,000 for permaculture projects around the world.

As we enter a new decade, the world is experiencing a huge shift in awareness. Many are hearing the Call, some for the first time; Greta has chastised the UN; XR continues to take to the streets; the proroguing of the British Parliament that subverted the world’s oldest democracy was judged illegal; Trump risks impeachment (again); every hour the corporate media are reporting on climate change; and trolls are purveying their noxious climate denying excretions on social media.

Albert Bates has focussed on climate change, biochar and permaculture solutions for years. Here he joins with scientist Kathleen Draper to present the latest, most innovative thinking and experimentation on removing carbon from the atmosphere.

First of all they set the scene: The science behind why there is currently a 93% chance that the planet will be more than 40ºC warmer than it is now by 2100, a scenario that predicts survival for very few humans, let alone other species.

There is no doubt we are live in challenging times. There is a 93% chance that the planet will be more than 4ºC warmer than today by 2100. June was the hottest recorded month ever. The hottest single day was so intense that temperatures were as much as 10ºC higher than normal across France, Germany, northern Spain and Italy.
