In this episode, the second part of a multi-part series, we at some of the critiques of permaculture. And the focus is on an article written by permie Peter Harper in 2003.

This series takes a critical look at permaculture itself. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

As I sit here today I wonder if the same permaculture that got us here, is the same permaculture that we need to ultimately effect change into the future.

The times are different, the people are different, technology is different. I am not simply saying let's rewrite the designers manual with new updates. I am saying let's take a critical look at what is in the manual and tear it apart. What works and what doesn't, and cut out what doesn't. Because if we think that everything in that manual works, we are telling ourselves a lie.
