Permaculture relationships

Permaculture is a design discipline for emphasizing the relationship between natural processes. The term is a portmanteau for permanent agriculture and permanent culture and includes the production of healthy biotopes, soil fertility, food production societal well-being.

Unfortunately due to some of permaculture's aesthetically challenged proponents, the practice did mainstream. This in turn kept it from being taught at architecture & design academies, art schools, and universities, and subsequently from benefitting from a goodly dose of critical response.

Issues affecting us now, i.e. climate change and Peak Oil are renewing interest in the discipline, which is fortunately experiencing rapid development and increased acceptance.
