Permaculture research - web survey - is LIVE!

Posted by Rafter Sass Ferguson over 11 years ago

You can find out more about the survey - and take it! - through liberationecology.org/survey.

Would you consider sending an email along to your own community or listserve? Or would you consider putting a blurb, button, or link on your website? It's a great way to support this emerging phenomenon of permaculture research.

Who is doing permaculture?

We're renewing the relationship between permaculture andscientific research - and we need your help. This surveyis one of the first attempts to systematically answer these questions.

Please contribute your time and perspective by going to the webaddress above and filling out the survey. It doesn't matter if youare a new student or an old hand - all are welcome. In the ~25 minutes it will take, you can help strengthen our understandingof where permaculture is at, and where it's going.
