Analog forestry and permaculture: (not so) distant cousins?
One of the most frequent questions we get when talking about analog forestry is: isn’t that the same as permaculture? The truth is, they’re not so different – indeed, one could say that they sprouted from the same soil, as both methods were born around the same time, and both have strengths that complement one another. At IAFN, a number of our board members have taken, or teach, Permaculture Design Courses. In this interview, IAFN Chairperson and experiences permaculturalist Grover Stock explores the common goals of analog forestry and permaculture, and how the two can work together.
