Those who are interested in the thoughts of kids on permaculture may
want to keep an eye on this blog by my 8 year old friend & occasional
intern, Thurman O'Herlihy.

Robin Clayfield's massive 'Manual for Teaching Permaculture 
Creatively' has a chapter on working with youth.

Heather Coburn Flores excellent 'Food Not Lawns' has a chapter titled 
"The Next Generation"

Green Teacher magazine #78 focuses on Permaculture and #75 focuses on Seedballs

Carolyn Nuttall's excellent 'Children's Food Forest'

and Carolyn's newest book with Janet Millington called 'Outdoor Classrooms'
though the latter is only available in the states through PRI's 
store:  http://permaculture.org.au

unfortunately this means shipping and handling is almost as expensive 
as the book itself. It would be nice if a place like the Permaculture 
Activist online store could carry it state-side...

Happy reading,
