    schema:description "Maddy Harland offers a unique, frontline take on 25 years of environmental successes and the massive challenges facing this planet and its people. From permaculture's origins in Australia in the 1970s to its current activities in over 170 countries worldwide, Harland explores the positive developments of this global movement and the potential it has yet to achieve. Her narrative is contextualized by significant trends and events: wars, disasters, deforestation, rising sea levels, the threat to the Gulf Stream, 9/11, Occupy, the rise of Trump, Brexit and climate denial. From discussions of practical permaculture to ruminations on deep ecology and global transformation, Harland contrasts the permaculture perspective with the ecocide of business as usual. Her writings reference concepts such as regenerative culture, earth restoration and social permaculture, long before they were to become core permaculture ideas and practices. Her deep connection with the natural world--its seasons, landscapes, and species--and all that our differing cultures and spirits have to offer add another dimension of heart to this book. These editorials from the mid 1990s to today, comprise a thoughtful portrait of an increasingly global movement, represent a forthright and compassionate call to arms, and offer pathways to hope and strength in times of crisis."@en ;
