That describes my interest in it, at least a lot of it gardening and 
BTW there hasn't been much talk about the aesthetics and healing 
qualities of creating and enjoying your landscaped dwelling or other 
places on your site and part of the permaculture design and design 
implementation process. A permaculture landscape as part of a site plan 
is still a landscaped area, a dedicated project, obviously the art and 
ornamental aspects of permaculture design. I spent 16 years at this and 
still enjoy it. Others here in this list are professional landscapers.
I wonder of there are landscape architects?
