I was thinking of forming alt.agriculture.permaculture as part of the 
alt.agriculture.* (misc, fruit, alt.sustainable.agriculture) 
"heirarchy". If someone will write a statement of purpose I will
post this to alt.config and other groups for discussion then ask my 
newsadmin to form and propagate this new newsgroup. 

With this new resource we will have:

2 permaculture mailing lists 
1 newsgroup
webpage-based permaculture discussion forums within my permaculture
(& organic agriculture) homepages - these offer a user the ability to 
post to an archive then immediately (10 secs. or less) read what was 
posted - posts can be made on the page or remotely using email.
- Usage:
--Permaculture forum:
Main URL: http://sunsite.unc.edu/london/permaculture.html
