Toby Hemenway–who wrote Gaia’s Garden,very smart and accessible  introduction to permaculture, spent five years in Portland, Oregon, working on  The Permaculture City and urban permaculture projects.  He is admired because of his focus on permaculture for home design–especially in urban and suburban settings, which is important because it bridges the rural/urban dichotomy.
