A PC Course participant from Santa Cruz wrote and asked me
for some help gathering information on teaching permaculture to children.
I sent him some book ideas from my Biblio. These books tend to focus on
growing food and Nature-
Any other ideas out there? I thought I heard there was/is a book in
process on this exact topic- Kids and PC?
Please send via listserve and to Eric directly
