Started in 2005, Permaculture Reflections has offered articles on a variety of topics specific to permaculture and sustainable design.
Our mission is to help you learn the skills you need to partner with the natural world to create a happy, healthy sustainable future.
We provide clear, scientifically valid information on sustainable design for adult learners.
