Permaville is a strategy to assess and design ecological solutions for a community of any size. The Permaville book offers an extensive process to determine which of over 180 permaculture elements and programs would be suitable in your home or community. Here is a description of the book: "In the middle of 2007, for the first time in human history, it was estimated that more than half of the world's population lived in cities. Cities provide luxuries but consume an unbearable amount of resources. Rural areas, while they don't consume as much as cities, often can't provide enough basic amenities like food or healthcare. At this juncture of human development, we face two major challenges: 1) How can we decrease the consumption of goods, food, energy, minerals and water in urban areas? And how can we provide more goods and services to people in rural areas? Permaville presents a powerful, new perspective on community development. Including abstracts of over 180 permaculture elements and programs, Permaville walks the reader through the process of redesigning a community into a revenue-generating paradise. Based on the Permaculture Design Course, Permaville presents readers with a comprehensive philosophy on what people need and challenges readers to think about what they would do to improve the physical and social infrastructure of their home and community. If you are looking for a new perspective on what we are doing on this planet, you should read this book." Here it is on Amazon ($14.99) - About the Author Before starting Permaville, Brian Newhouse was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Cape Verde Islands, built wind turbines around the US with General Electric, volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Costa Rica and All Hands Volunteers in Haiti and started a non-profit in Dominican Republic called Village12.
