Permaculture isn't just about creating good food, it is also about creating a good place to live.

Rising house prices makes access to affordable housing a critical issue in much of the global north, while rapid urbanisation means housing quality is a key issue in the global south. Freedom to choose where to live and who to live with are also important issues.

This section suggests some solutions that can turn that dream into reality.
