    To answer your question, no. It looks like there's a lot of useful information there, though I didn't explore any of the nodules. With a couple of exceptions (including the geographical ones, of course) I am doing or have done most of them. Skip the bees, no interest, and I have several sources of local honey.

    grulla, I did a Permaculture certificate in 1985 with Bill Mollison, the founder of permaculture. I had heard him talk on the radio and read his books: Permaculture 1 and 2, and was sold on his approach to living.

    People get carried away with the details, but what is important is understanding the principles and applying them to your own situation.

    Sadly, I just found out a few months ago that Bill Mollison had recently passed away. He'll be sorely missed. My late wife had mailordered his large permaculture manual and also an abbreviated version, both of which I have in my homestead library. "People get carried away with the details,..." True dat, the devil is in the details. :-)
