It is interesting to me that there's no section on permaculture in this forum, and only a few posts here and there (do not even know if this is the right place for the topic...), but no answers: no interest at all?
There are about 8000 registered users, I would think more than a few would be interested if not implementing it.
With all the space that there is in ireland, and the majority on people living in a house (as opposed to apartment), there is lots of emphasis on keeping the lawns, but very little on edible lawns, cosidering that permaculture is time-saving, money-saving, water-saving, more ecological, and defo easier than traditional cultivation, what do you think is the resistance?

There were some posts last year by Kim on this topic if you want to root around for them.

Really, Wegtax, resorting to puns! I'm surprised at you!

Christ, have I stooped that low, albeit unintentionally?
