Permaculture on the Black Isle - BIPA 2018 newsletter
06 January 2019
Black Isle Permaculture and Arts - otherwise known as Clive Brandon and Julie Plumridge, have sent us their 2018 newsletter summarising the wide range of their activities during last year. To say it was obviously a busy year would be a considerable understatement.
Check out their website at www.blackislepermacultureandarts.co.uk/
See also an interesting blog by Julie Deconchat in which, after writing favorably about a visit to Clive and Julie, she suggests the Permaculture movement may be 'undermining its potential', by representing individual attitudes and initiatives as appropriate responses to issues of sustainability, while failing to give sufficient attention to the systemic and structural problem of intensive industrial agriculture.
