22 Permaculture Principles from The Possibility Alliance
The Possibility Handbook  is implicitly about permaculture, but the overt message is about the ways we can change ourselves so that we can become Agents of Possibility and change the world. As a result, many of the permaculture lessons gathered from The Possibility Alliance will not make it into the final book although they remain useful to the Permaculture community as a whole. One of those gems is this list of permaculture principles that blends together popular ones from authors such as David Holmgren, and others I’ve not found elsewhere.
