Hi, Folks. I'm sharing a resource that I hope will be helpful to the work that you are doing: http://www.natcapsolutions.org/projects/LASER/LASERguide.pdf
Permaculture design pertains to the design of diverse, stable, resilient, and regenerative design of all systems - not simply food growing. As you know, we need to reweave our local economic system, too. Hope this will spark some ideas.
