You know I go on about how permaculture is not limited to backyard food forests, here you can ready about "How farms are using permaculture design to survive and prosper" - from the UK based Permaculture Magazine (which is available in Australia).
THINK BIG with your permaculture design... Transition Towns are another application of permaculture design within communities and the systems that support those communities (health, education, transport, building, planning, water, energy, food...).
Start in your backyard (at your back door, under your nose) and learn your lessons there, then take it beyond and see how far you can go with it.
Knowledge and application of permaculture design builds resilience, which is a powerful skill to have now and to pass onto future generations.
Have a great weekend and try to stay dry if you're in South East Queensland or Northern NSW!
