About the Journal

The Permaculture Drylands Journal was one of the seminal permaculture print publications and circulated for over ten years from 1988-1999. The full spectrum of permaculture practice is represented in these historic pages, pointing the way toward the development of an ecological culture, particularly for arid regions. Permaculture practitioners will find these journals filled with practical concepts, beautiful definitions of permaculture, historic permaculture projects, indigenous perspectives, debates, inspiration, and permaculture lore. Readers today may find their own conception of permaculture growing as they read these pages.

Originally published by the Permaculture Drylands Institute (PDI), an outgrowth of the Southwest Regional Permaculture Institute and Sonoran Permaculture Association, and now defunct, the Permaculture Institute is digitally publishing these issues with permission from previous editors and rights as the organization that absorbed the PDI. The first several issues were published as Sustainable Living in Drylands, with issues 1, 2, and 6 being lost to time, unfortunately.

Disclaimer: Advertisements and contact information contained in these journals are historic and non-current. Each issue is displayed in the original publishing format with no editing. Scanning the journals was an imperfect process and we apologize in advance for any blurred and slightly crooked text.

Special thanks to former editors Vicki Marvick and Ann Audrey for helping us document this important chapter in Permaculture’s history, as well as Brad Lancaster, Wes Roe, and Creighton Hofeditz for tracking down lost issues.
