5.0 out of 5 stars The breadth is staggering, 20 Dec 2012
This review is from: People & Permaculture (Paperback)
When opening up People in Permaculture its no surprise to see ringing endorsements from such luminaries as Satish Kumar, Joanna Macy and David Holmgren as this is a great work - and a book focusing on applications of non-land based Permaculture is timely.
Many of the elders involved in the Permaculture movement have for a long while commented that we have had all the techniques for earth remediation for sometime now, its the people in the system that need to catch up and actively change our scarcity culture to one of abundance. People & Permaculture tackles this issue head on. It is a complex topic, but Looby maps it all out, breaking it into bite-sized chunks. The breadth of the work is quite staggering, no stone is left unturned - and all done in a way that gently inspires us to bring more awareness and design into our lives. Through dealing with ourselves we can also affect the world around us. Some key insights are Looby's Design Web approach and her bringing in Ken Wilber's integral model into a Permacultural context.
If you find yourself drawn to the people in your designs then this book is for you - I would also add that if you find yourself unable to fully integrate people into your designs then this book is for you too.
