He goes on and explains that problem seldom happen at code ranch whereas there is ick every other day at permies.

He then goes on about how permaculturist face self hatred as well as corporate trolls.

Paul explains that he thinks there are not more prominent women in permaculture because good hearted people don’t want anything to do with all the hate there is.
