David Holmgren:  "People, their buildings and the ways they organize themselves are central to permaculture."

The phenomenon called Transition was hatched in the UK and for several years has been spreading around the world.  Transition is possible, transition is probable and nearly inevitable.

  • Transition Network (UK) site, on which appear Rob Hopkins' new blogs
  • Transition Culture (Rob Hopkins') original (archival) site
  • Transition US site (official)
  • Transition in Action site (Global & unofficial, but sometimes lively.  Here you can find links to similar sites dedicated to particular states, territories....)

In August 2014, in Minnesota, there's another unprecedented opportunity to meet and mix with a large number of permaculturalists, at the North American Permaculture Convergence.

"Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for the Divine the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire."
