This question from Tony who asks:
Is there, at least in theory, a “maximum size” in the utilization of Permaculture in an area? For example, the other day you illustrated your plans for your own property (I liked the “fishermen’s path,” btw), and with how remarkably detailed it all was I began to wonder “what would happen if someone tried to do this, but with thirty acres?” Essentially, I’m wondering if there is a point (as someone practicing Permaculture) where you’re better off either letting the area grow wild or separating to individual Permaculturist enclaves.
This leads to an episode that was shorter than I expected when I separated it out to be answered on its own. The answer that goes with it? No to the first part and “It depends on the design” to the second.
Mark Shepherd’s 106 acre permaculture farm I mentioned as an example of a large scale application.
And a big thank you to everyone who has liked the show on Facebook. There is now a custom URL for the show, originally enough:
