Maddy Harland

CO-FOUNDER AND EDITOR

Maddy Harland is the co-founder and editor of Permaculture magazine and author of Fertile Edges - Regenerating the land, culture and hope.

My main interests are beekeeping, forest gardening, being on the land, wild places.

Permaculture for me is more than an ecological design system, for me it is a way of seeing and understanding the world as a whole and responding to it. It is a way of life.

Every issue of PM is an opportunity to express our gratitude to all our subscribers, readers, contributors, partners, stores and distributors for your continued support in what are challenging times. We have survived by a process of swift adaptation (especially when all of our stores closed in many parts of the world overnight in March 2020), a willingness to adopt new ideas and ways of working, and because of the loyalty of all of you. We thank you.

In 2018, I was offered £10,000 to start a permaculture award. I could decide the criteria and how to give the money away, what I couldn’t do was pocket any of the cash for the set up and admin work. Within months the Permaculture Magazine Prize had attracted another £15,000 that included a £5,000 Youth in Permaculture Prize for outstanding people under 25, attracted judges from all over the world, and the Permaculture Magazine team and myself had set up the basic framework. By 2019, the Prizes had become £30,000 for permaculture projects around the world.

As we enter a new decade, the world is experiencing a huge shift in awareness. Many are hearing the Call, some for the first time; Greta has chastised the UN; XR continues to take to the streets; the proroguing of the British Parliament that subverted the world’s oldest democracy was judged illegal; Trump risks impeachment (again); every hour the corporate media are reporting on climate change; and trolls are purveying their noxious climate denying excretions on social media.
