We just got our copy of the 2013 Permaculture Calendar, which is, once again, 12 months of beautiful pictures of permaculture in practice from around the world, on recycled paper stock with a great textural feel. It will be a pleasure to have in the woolshed, and in the tinyhouse too.
Any calendar that gives you great shots of free-range pigs snuffling, school garden bounty and a humanure hacienda in monthly succession gets my vote!
Contributors for 2013 include fabuloso folks including Adam Grubb of VEG, Ben Law’s Woodland House, Taranaki Farm, Jodie Lane of Fair Harvest, John Champagne, and Leonie Shannahan’s Edible School Gardens… a visual feast for 12 months straight, as well as a permaculture principle for each month.
“When it comes to demonstrating the design principles, you’ll find one provided for each month. Each one is a locally appropriate example of sustainable living and design.
Perhaps they will inspire, or at the very least remind us of the changes that we can make in our own lives to help the world become a better place for us all to live“
The calendar is now being compiled by Richard Telford, he of the permaculture principles website, which is a treasure trove of free downloads and resources, including David Holmgren’s excellent Permaculture principles and design ethics teaching kit…
Of course the calendar is also super ethical in its assembly and production, which means it’s been produced that down the track you can happily compost it if need be, knowing your worms will be happy.
