Following the Hudson Valley Ecovillage and NW NJ Ecovillage Yahoo groups. I'll be happy to forward links if anyone can't find them.

What are some of your favorite permaculture resources? (Books, videos, websites, etc.)

See for information about the rhizome network concept. I also put a couple articles in the files section regarding "Appreciative Inquiry" and another regarding how to organize using both hierarchy and heterarchy. This group serves as a communication strategy for anyone into Permaculture within the NYC region.

Yes (Geoff Lawton @ Epworth '07)


We created this group to facilitate Permaculture events in the NYC region. Please request organizer privileges if you would like to promote your own events.
