"design is a connection between things. It is not water, or a chicken or the tree. It is how the water, the chicken and the tree are connected. It's the opposite of what we are taught in school. Education takes everything and pulls it apart and makes no connections at all. Permaculture makes the connection because as soon as you have the connection you can feed the chicken from the tree".
The Permaculture website has a great article on Beekeeping.
