[permaculture] Permaculture

I haven't taken any permaculture courses, just read some basic books 
(and done some thinking); so I've hesitated to participate much, since 
I'm not familiar with the common base of knowledge.  

One thing that I have trouble with, that I see in the permaculture 
movement, is that there appears to be this rigid definition and 
structure and the "right" way to think about land use and society; 
even arguing about the right definition of zones.  

I care about my land, and my animals and plants, and I want it all to 
work together: I see the beauty of the inputs and outputs meeting up.
If permaculture requires courses and has "insiders" and "outsiders", 
and an official definition of the Truth, then I'm not sure I want to 
participate - though it doesn't actually change what I'll do.
