Getting Started
If you're doing any of the following, you've already started practising permaculture:
∙ enjoying the beauty of nature;
∙ growing some of your own food;
∙ walking, cycling or taking public transport instead of going by car;
∙ making decisions about what you buy on the basis of how it effects the Earth;
∙ reusing and recycling materials;
∙ supporting nature conservation.
The next step may be to:
∙ contact other people locally who are interested in permaculture;
∙ go and see a site where it's being practised;
∙ look for a topic or two on the subject;
∙ get a permaculture designer to come and look at your house and garden or farm;
∙ attend a course.
The two main contact points for all these things are the Permaculture Association and Per-
manent Publications.
