On skimming the wikipedia's permaculture article,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permaculture It was obvious that additional
editing is needed.
To reduce edit war energy, perhaps the changes could be collectively
burnished in a more open wiki, before submission to wikipedia.
At first glance, these sections drew my attention:
1) Permaculture design for ecologinomic (ecology-economic) ethics.
The horrid neologism "ecologinomic" is missing both quotes and definitions
in dictionaries (Websters and the top two neologism dictionaries listed at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neologism which includes The Internalational
Dictionary of Neologisms, http://www.neologisms.us/ curated by
permaculturalist mIEKAL aND.)
2) In the Critiques section they have:

mediterranean or desert conditions, but isn't suitable for a cool temperate
country such as the UK. 
Which ignores the many UK usages that follow in the Contemporary examples
3) In the Contemporary examples section, they request:
Please wikify (format) this [North America] article or section as suggested
in the Guide to layout and the Manual of Style
