I think making things and teaching things are some of the more obvious forms of income from permaculture.
I wonder if things like design consulting (I.E, personally consulting clients as to how to start their gardens, recommend products/ services etc) would turn-over more of a profit?
Perhaps this would be a developing business venture if/when urban sustainability catches on?
Unless you're very efficient at making things or have a high-end market, it's difficult to make a living making things and selling them (I make things for a living). I think if you have excellent people skills consulting is probably a more profitable endeavor, for one thing your main investment is in yourself rather than tools and workspace.
Start a non-profit that Permablitz's in a community, you are required to draw a salary from a non-profit after all.
