Welcome to the Commons Collection

So here it is. The Permaculture Commons Collection. As we try to contribute to the field of open and free Permaculture, our first effort was to search for the content that already exists.
If you know projects that are missing from this collection, tell us!


Books (1)

Not enough going on!

Soil and Health Library

“Health begins in the soil”
Their vision is to make works available that empower people to grow their own food, be healthy and think for themselves. Self-empowerment is true freedom.

  • Botho:

    Most of the books are out of print, some are in the public domain, but be careful: There’s still a lot of copyrighted material as well.

Education (2)

Serlo Permaculture

Serlo.org is an education platform that offers Permaculture as an subject. It’s far from complete, but evolving.

  • Botho:

    Disclaimer: This is our project :) Be sure to check it out and let us know what you think!

Permaculture Association

“Find out about permaculture ethics, principles, design approaches and useful information about over 200 practical solutions!”

 

Hardware / Tools (2)

It’s quite remarkable that these projects deal with hardware and seeds and not so much with software. We love the hardware. But where are the open source permaculture tools?

Farmhack

“An open source community for resilient agriculture”
This nice little video explains the concept. Has nice projects and a lively community.

Plants (3)

Open Source Seed Initiative

“The Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) is dedicated to maintaining fair and open access to plant genetic resources worldwide.”

Videos (3)

Not so much going on!

Red Wigglers / Vermicomposting

This video explains why you want to have worms as pets and how vermi-composting works. It’s super nice.

  • Botho:

    Allison (the author) intended to make more short videos on green and sustainable practices but didn’t find the time. Maybe some views will help … :)

Wikis / General Knowledge (4)

Of course there are others out there, but those seem to be the healthiest (activity, amount of articles).
It’s probably wise to concentrate the efforts to these projects.
