    Aren't we all doing permaculture research on these forums?

    I think what the UK permies are wanting is people using a reliable research methodology that will be taken seriously by the mainstream and can be used to generate permaculture knowledge in different ways than we have now.

    In fact looking at their website, they do have an outline of what they are expecting

    I think permaculture could definitely use some dedicated researchers to give it some more scientific exposure. Otherwise it will be hard to escape the hippie label and show why permaculture is worthwhile to the rest of the world. Once I am more settled in my life, it's something I would really like to personally get involved in. There is great potential for sociological, ecological, and agronomical research (among others).

    Yeah, that's what I figured after reading it yesterday. Doing research experimentation using scientific methods is pretty intimidating for most people(and tedious).

    Well, to be honest, my PDC is sort of on hold because I am researching Water & Schauberger's theories such as the +4C anomaly and how it applies to aquaponics. I figure I am going to have to take close notes, theories, etc.

    Source:Wikipedia

    Currently re-reading 2 books about him & his theories as well as one on Flow Forms since they do more then just add Oxygen to the water.
