My name is Julie, and I am currently travelling in Scotland, visiting different permaculture projects in various places as part of a research project on the interactions between principles, values, and concrete practices in permaculture. I plan on visiting six or seven projects before the end of June, and to write a blog article on each of them, to tell you more about my experience, and to highlight some of my key findings and/or thoughts on different subjects. It is meant to be personal, and you may disagree with some of my opinions – I am looking forward to receiving feedback!
