Permaculture Edges

It is interesting to talk about the concept of boundaries. In permaculture, edges are considered to be the most productive. In ecology, a gradient of conditions shows up between the boundaries of two different states. The boundaries do not have to be only among zones of place but also among those of time. For instance, the time boundary between two seasons might show a spectrum of conditions and a consequent richness of organism populations.
