Fertile Edges

    By

    "Essential reading ... signposts to sustain an activist's heart ... " Rob Hopkins, co-founder of Transition Network "Maddy's voice of courage is a clarion call to anyone who has a rumbling in their belly, a hunger for a world of radical care and vital connection." Looby Macnamara, author of People and Permaculture and 7 Ways to Think Differently "Strangely rollicking good fun!" John D. Liu, film maker and Founder of the Ecosystem Restoration Camps movement Maddy Harland offers a unique frontline take on the environmental successes and challenges facing this planet and its people. She explores the rise of permaculture globally, from its origins in Australia in the 1970s to its current worldwide activities, and describes the positive developments of this global movement and its huge potential. Amid a wealth of solutions and the ecocide of `business as usual', Maddy interfaces practical permaculture with global transformation and deep ecology. She writes of regenerative culture, earth restoration and social permaculture long before they became core ideas and practices. Her deep connection with the natural and human worlds and all that our differing cultures have to offer adds a beautiful dimension of heart to the book ... A treasure trove of gems of inspiration arising from the edges where the personal, local, national and global intersect and a glimpse into the life and mind of a remarkable woman.
