Design For Lower Energy Inputs

For decades Bill Mollison traveled the globe spreading the word about permaculture. This method of sustainable agriculture weaves together annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management and human needs into intricately connected productive on going systems that need work for each year.

"It's not just gardening, it's design - design for lower energy inputs."

Mollison has proved that even in the most difficult conditions permaculture empowers people to turn wastelands into food forests. Here he is in New York City exploring the culture of community gardens.
