I thought Ludi explained it rather well. What part didn't you understand?
I was asking you. Permaculture is a new word & means different things to different people.

Why is always a reasonable question as long as it's asking genuinely.

I still don't see why permaculture inherently cannot be made large scale.
If one man/woman can manage a food forest of a few acres why can't 100 people manage a food forest of a few hundred acres? I mean sure it would take some organization but what worthwhile endeavor doesn't?
It's nice to see some acknowledgment though that permaculture is best supplemented with other techniques.
