This Wikibook is, of course, a collaborative research project. It's currently in its early stages. If there are dead links, you are encouraged to fill them in. Feel free to use the discussion tab at the top of this page to discuss this and any other topic in the book. Use the discussion page to discuss anything from format and content to objectives and style, and respectfully edit and add where needed. The goal for 90% completion is late February.
Permaculture has its origins in the designs of produce gardens, farms, houses and communities, and so the examples and references in texts are dominated by such. It is hoped that over time, this text will collect references and examples of premaculture design processes being applied in a wider range of contexts.
This book aims to provide a theoretical overview of permaculture to serve as a starting point for the research and application thereof. It does not aim to serve as an encyclopedia as there are other resources for that (see Other Resources).
