Ahhh Donny this will take more than a simple email, perhaps a skype chat.
But in brief,  I personally have been involved with all groups and continue
to be. Many of the exponents within are very much attached to their own
doctrines and feel that their journey and their science is the most
advantageous in this whole realm of the worlds of the land-use disciplines.
The some exists in the worlds of composts. I guess you could sy it is the
failings of the emotional capacities of our species that develops this
competition. However on the other hand having these different disciplines
allows for some very specific research and development and models in each.
which inturn we as Permaculturalists pick up and use in our systems. We in
Permaculture are very fortunate to have all this specialisation going on
that we can then apply, for we see things as in a complete ecological view,
bringing all ecologies together in the soup, naturally, learning from
nature. And that, is why Permaculture has so much to offer.....in my view
anyway...Steve Hart
