tilling? If not, it sounds like there would be no problem giving links for
Regarding Permaculture, I think the suggestion of a link to the British site
is a good idea. There are lots of people involved with that association who
are interested in and perhaps use Fukuoka's techniques. I am sure also that
if you asked them, they would add our site to their links page. That would
be very good.
An example of no-till permaculture could be Ben Law. He has a book, "The
Woodland Way: A Permaculture Approach to Sustainable Woodland Management"
which I will be happy to review once I've read it. He is the coppicer. I
don't think he ever tills. As I have said, his woods have been continually
coppiced for 400 years. This then, also seems consistent.
Emilia, do you have a web-site?
