I moved to Italy 5 months ago, where I live with my partner up in the mountains in a very small village, where nature is still wild and there are still a few of the old generation who live a simple life and appreciate natural living. 

The evolution is upon us!  The world around us has changed a lot in the last forty years, since Bill Mollinson and David Holmgren first described their permaculture principles. From those early beginnings our pioneers set out to show the world that change was possible; to demonstrate that we could create permanent agricultural systems that were both productive and sustainable.
