The geese have adjusted pretty well to the life on our farm! The ducks are still a little wary but they're making friends.

Permaculture is defined as consciously designed landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fibre and energy for the provision of local needs…more precisely I see Permaculture as the use of systems thinking and design principles that provide the organizing framework for implementing the above vision
- David Holmgren
Permaculture is an integrated, evolving system of perennial and self-perpetuating plants and animal species useful to man.
- Bill Mollison and David Holmgren
You can solve all the world's problems in a garden.
- Geoff Lawton
The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter.
- Bill Mollison
“Observe Nature thoughrully rather than labour thoughtlessly”
- Masanoby Fukuoka
