Scythe Connection
We are not an "organization", although we co-organize some events and learning processes, and have conducted and motivated scythe-related research and design development. For lack of a better term to accurately describe our work, we use "network" to describe a very loosely-structured, ever-changing web of learning and working relationships. Far more of these are with people in Europe than in North America, some dating back to my first journey to Austria (Jan./Feb. 1999). We may work intensively with representatives of one or more institutions for several months while organizing an event; then our connections sometimes fade and new ones are born. Of all those contacts, only a few have remained steady and reliable. A percentage of them, however, can only be maintained by periodic visits in person, because some of the people do not have computers, or don't write letters. Overall, the telephone has been by far the most useful means of keeping the energy moving (learning of new developments, getting more people involved and sharing useful information).

En 1993, un groupe d’étudiants et un propriétaire de ferme, en l’occurrence Bernard Alonso, ont été fascinés par le concept de permaculture de Bill Mollison. Le groupe voulait expérimenter les principes de la « permaculture » inspirés par celui-ci et qui s’harmonisaient si bien avec l’environnement. À ce moment, Stewart Hill, du Collège Macdonald de l’Université McGill, avait mentionné une formation en Colombie-Britannique pour les intéressés. Le coût de l’opération étant trop élevé, le groupe décide de démarrer un organisme à but non lucratif afin de permettre au professeur de la Colombie-Britannique de venir donner la formation au Québec.

A pour mission de :Proclamer et promouvoir une agriculture et un mode de vie qui s’harmonisent avec l’équilibre écologique dans son ensemble tout en respectant l’environnement.

Author of Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture and The Permaulture City.
After obtaining a degree in biology from Tufts University, Toby worked for many years as a researcher in genetics and immunology, first in academic laboratories including Harvard and the University of Washington in Seattle, and then at Immunex, a major medical biotech company. At about the time he was growing dissatisfied with the direction biotechnology was taking, he discovered permaculture, a design approach based on ecological principles that creates sustainable landscapes, homes, and workplaces. A career change followed, and Toby and his wife, Kiel, spent ten years creating a rural permaculture site in southern Oregon. He was the editor of Permaculture Activist, a journal of ecological design and sustainable culture, from 1999 to 2004. He moved to Portland, Oregon in 2004, and spent six years developing urban sustainability resources there. Toby and his wife now live in Sebastopol, California.

Far West Bulb FarmFar West Bulb Farm is a part–time project (really, a hobby that is out of control) owned and run by Nancy and Ames Gilbert. Many years ago, we had a complete–line California Native Plant Nursery, but were unable to make a reasonable return on our investment of time, money and energy. This meant getting "regular" jobs (Nancy is the landscape architect at a local Air Force base, and Ames is his own boss, making electrical assemblies). So, we scaled back to just one deep interest, Native Bulbs. They have a great advantage, they don't need constant summer watering!

The Mendocino Ecological Learning Center (MELC) is an educational organization and demonstration site where people can come and see examples of living in ways that conserve resources, create diversity, increase self sufficiency, and promote profound understandings of the relationships between ourselves and our planet.

The Center practices sustainable stewardship of lands, plants, animals and energy systems.

MELC was founded in 2003 by a group of organic farmers, educators, naturalists, artists, and people seeking innovative alternatives to destructive farming, housing, energy and land management practices. At the core of the Center's work lay dynamic approaches and solutions to today's privately owned and corporately run economies, ecologies and cultures. We recognize the importance of community based agriculture, land management, natural building/housing alternatives, renewable energy production and distribution. Through examples and working models in place on site and throughout the world, we offer research and training for those seeking long term solutions to many of the problems facing us today and into the future.

Permaculture Across Borders came about as a result of conversations at Permaculture Design Certificate courses in the USA and Australia. A foundation was envisioned that would build upon local knowledge by supporting community-based education sites, and that would also connect communities, cities and regions to each other.

Today our Board and Advisory Board members live and work across the world, from Australia to Tajikistan; from Armenia to Jordan and in every region of the United States. Their connections are PAB’s greatest resource. After assembling an initial team of teachers, designers, and consultants from across the globe, Permaculture Across Borders incorporated as a Not for Profit in the state of California, USA, during August of 2006.

Our Goals:

  • To build permaculture demonstration and teaching sites in partnership with local communities
  • To sponsor students' participation in PDC courses
  • To provide internship and teaching opportunities for PDC graduates
  • To connect financial and technical resources to communities
  • To connect sister cities and regions so that experiences can be shared and to learn from those shared experiences

As a result of the incredible challenges posed by widespread land degradation in drylands, there is a tremendous need to develop new methods that will provide alternatives to existing, potentially unsustainable land use management practices. In order to support the development and implementation of appropriate systems, we have established this resource to serve as a platform for the accumulation and refinement of knowledge pertinent to the needs of primary stakeholders in affected drylands. Our initial intended audience is practitioners, researchers, and their supporters engaged in the work of sustainable agriculture and ecological rehabilitation in the drylands context. It is our hope that by encouraging diverse entities to collaborate in the growth of this website, the continuing work of individuals and organizations internationally may derive direct benefit from its content.

The Permaculture Project works to help build the proper eco-skills necessary in all areas of life. Our vision is to make sure that all of our students and clients are eventually able to read directly from the very Book of Nature herself. Care and love of the environment are at the core of our work: ethics and values grow naturally out of these practices: care of the earth, care of people, ethical surplus distribution, building an ecological-human support base. One can come to understand the inherent connection between Nature, humanity and society, revealing that every thought, word and action carries consequences. Each person shares responsibility for the development of another. The Permaculture Project believes that education focuses our efforts to answer life’s fundamental questions. Learning the answers to these questions is best encouraged through love, nurturing, cooperation and reverence for all life.

We bring a broad range of experience to guide you through the process of creating abundant, whole system yields for your property, family, or community. By applying fundamental ecological principles and careful attention, we work to reveal, reevaluate, map, list, measure and magnify the abundance already present or potential in your landscape, ecosystem, watershed, or bioregion. We can also identify the "leaks" (of energy, $, water, species, or nutrients) in your system and suggest essential "repairs" necessary to regenerate them.

We do this by planting at least one of every species in the gardens of the Will Holler Homestead. We also strive to build resilience in our local community by giving away tons of information with every plant! (Sorry, no mail order)

In November 2008, she decided to go out on a financial limb and buy the property next door in order to sponsor a community permaculture garden in the Green Acres Neighborhood. She chroncicles the evolution of this project at as "an ongoing report on the origins, difficulties, thrills, successes, failures, and whatever else comes up, as a group of people grope toward manifesting a collective vision during the great global descent into a far simpler way of life that, depending on our level of awareness, will create either coherence or chaos."

Crone Magazine is the successor to Crone Chronicles which ended publication in 2001. Back issues of some Crone Chonicles issues are available on the BBI Media store. Crone Magazine, was relaunched as a quartely print magazine in 2008 with Ann as the original Founding Editor at the helm and a new publisher, Anne Niven, of SageWoman magazine.

We are creating a local food system based on home gardens and retail grocery cooperatives that are owned by producers and consumers. Although not formally educated in a PDC, we are creating a forest garden on the former lawns of our working class inner Oklahoma City neighborhood. We distribute surplus plants and seeds to others to help their gardens, and have recently acquired two empty lots in our neighborhood which we intend to develop as permaculture community gardens. We also distribute surplus food by feeding homeless people in downtown OKC who don't live in shelters, and delivering food to people in need who don't have transportation to get to a regular food bank.

Sustainable Living for a Better World

We have relocated in Oregon and are developing an "urban homestead"/permaculture site! see story on And once again, as land steward and instructor, we hope to live and demonstrate a way to live on the Earth in a way that takes care of the Earth, and people, and can produce a surplus to share. A conscious effort is made to introduce ways of thinking about the design of an entire site, while building and gardening and conserving water and other resources. All the elements will serve many functions, and each is a part of the design of the “whole site”. Using permaculture strategies, we will offer consultations on whole site design, & sustainable living techniques, which includes building with natural materials, as well as rain water harvesting, food forests and gardens, land and building restoration & more. Workshops and training will be offered, as well as general "how-to do-it-yourself" information and links to valuable local resources, and materials for building a real home, creating a continuing and known source of healthy, organically grown food for your table and to share with others. We will offer classes (one day and weekend workshops) on a variety of sustainable living topics, see "workshops" on the web site for examples. Classes will also be offered through the Linn Benton Community College branch in the area. Internships and work exhange will be offered, please inquire by email.
