Hi. I'm Dan Palmer, and since 2016 I have been creating a blog and podcast called Making Permaculture Stronger. The project's core intention is to:

...inspire creative exploration and dialogue around permaculture design, in a way that develops our ability to think and act creatively as a community, enabling permaculture practitioners to effect the large scale systemic change we need.

Through hundreds of pages of freely published inquiries, many podcast episodes, and a growing collection of videos, this project is catalysing a global conversation of heart-felt, intelligent and civil dialogue.

Though this patreon page, I am now inviting the support I need to take this project to the next level, where it moves from hobby on the side to a core focus of my life's work. I'm talking more podcast episodes, more deep dives, more posts, more diagrams, more and higher-quality videos. I'm talking more time to read and feel and think and experiment. I'm talking getting the first Making Permaculture Stronger book into the world.

As of July 2020, I have discovered that this patreon thing actually works, in that 33 amazing beings have decided to support the project. As a result, I am now entering a new phase where I will be creating additional content and opportunities for patrons that I wouldn't be able to create without their support. My intention is to support the development of your design process literacy.

If you choose to support this project at any level whatsoever, I thank you deeply, and I look forward to collaborating with you as we get on with regenerating permaculture design process together.
$395 of $500 per month
Wow - if I can achieve $500 per month, Making Permaculture Stronger is officially no longer a hobby on the side. I'll start reliably producing podcast episodes every two weeks, publish a high-quality post weekly, spend at least a solid day each fortnight working on the Making Permaculture Stronger book and produce a solid video at least monthly. It's a whole new level of content creation I would LOVE your help to unleash!
