Paul Wheaton, the bad boy of Permaculture was proclaimed by Geoff Lawton in 2012 the Duke of Permaculture. He is the creator of two on-line communities. One is about Permaculture, Permies.com, and one is about software engineering, CodeRanch.com.
Paul is a great friend and an awesome innovator, he is always pushing just a bit harder to see what is possible with Permaculture.
He has a wonderful piece of property in the wilds of Montana where he is currently working hard to show just how awesome permaculture can be.
Recently he began an interesting take on building a permaculture community called deep roots. He and his brother are also almost finished with the first ever WOFATI, an earth contact style house he designed based on evolving Mike Ohler’s underground house design system.
