Permaculture Year Planner

Staying organised is one of the hardest aspects of a busy permaculture lifestyle, whether you live on a rural or urban property. Here is a quick reference to remind you of things that may need doing. This calendar is based on my personal calendar and is constantly changing. It also suggests things that you can do that are environmentally friendly and will enhance your well being as well as that of your local community on a daily basis.

Do you have a suggestion of something you would like to see on our planner? Then tell us about it!
