Today on Treehugger we found a great story on Permaculture. Now, permaculture is something we here at Animal Architecture have something of a tenuous relationship with…we’re pretty sure we love it but then again it seems almost too good, too happy-go-eco-friendly to trust. Then again, many of the projects featured here in the past have a strong permaculture bent (PolySpecies Park, The Dallas projects, and Flightpath). See for yourself and maybe you can convince us to come around to the permaculture culture.

For more info on Permaculture check out the wikipedia link here and the permaculture institute here.
