system. One advantage of permaculture design could be described thus, "By designing well and then by observing system evolution, we gain contemplative. A trigger industry works by providing the information necessary to create links and maximize use of local resources. This is a much easier and more effective way of going about halting erosion than the building of concrete check dams, which are expensive and are often ineffective against the force of run-off water. (1992) The Ecology of Commerce, Inc. A decentralised government would allow people in an area to be involved in decisions which affect them. One of them stood - not a soldier, he was a scribe, handling tablets under his cloak. Allow natural regeneration to take place, observe.

For the design of the physical structures of a new community, it is important to learn from natural processes. A balance needs to be struck between working within the framework of a vision, and trying to over-define what a future society would look like. One of the main directives of permaculture is to reduce the amount of land we need to supply our needs to a minimum, so that we can return as much to natural areas as possible. They help to re-mineralize degraded land by bringing nutrients up from deep down and cover the earth, beginning the process of breaking up compacted dirt and allowing water to penetrate hard pans.
