In 1968 Stewart Brand launched an innovative publication called The Whole Earth Catalog. It was groundbreaking, enlightening, and spawned a group of later publications. It's also where I learned about permaculture in a 1978 issue of the always outstanding Co-Evolution Quarterly.
The collection of that work provided on this site is not complete — and probably never will be — but it is a gift to readers who loved the CATALOG and those who are discovering it for the first time. You can also use the viewer to explore back issues of Co-Evolution Quarterly and its replacement Whole Earth Review. If you've never been blessed to encounter these excellent publications, now's your chance. Enjoy!
