Yes! To me, this aspect of personal expression, and treating our environments as a form of art, is one of the most important and under-appreciated aspects of Permaculture. In fact, from observing people acting in their communities, I think this is one of the main philosophies of the folks I’ve come to consider community transformation leaders. They understand that this quality of expression is important for solving the spiritual problems of our era that drive the ecological problems.

Anyway, I love Silk Farm, and Bealtaine Cottage, which are both great Permaculture designs in their productivity, but they’re also both beautiful, quirky expressions.
