A story of Hope.

This story conveys the sights, smells, textures, sounds, and logic of a civilization built using permaculture design and earthcare ethics.

The main character, Hope, unexpectedly returns to Earth and discovers a civilization that works with nature rather than against it; co-operates rather than competes; integrates rather than segregates; creates rather than consumes; values diversity as opposed to uniformity; and looks at Earth as the source of life rather than a resource.
