Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a
lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But
what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet?
This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the
replication of patterns found in nature. INHABIT explores the many
environmental issues facing us today and examines solutions that are
being applied using the ecological design lens of permaculture. Focused
mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States,
Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices
ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.
