“Use edges and value the marginal” is one of my favourite permaculture principles.
The margins are often overlooked, but in fact it is precisely where two ecosystems (or indeed systems) meet that we often see the greatest amount of diversity, exchange and creativity. Edges can be highly productive – both in the natural world and when it comes to human interactions.
So I’ve decided to start a whole new blog all about margins and edges!
You can follow my ramblings at the Marginal Edge.
