There is a difference between a gardener and a landscape architect. Why do
we think hat in permaculture there is only one level? If there is a difference
in designing your own backyard and designing a huge public park. Why do we
teach the same to both "users"? Why for the same amount of money? The
principles are the same, ok... but that is also with physics an chemistry
, doesn´t it?
