What is Permaculture?
A ecological design system for living using principles found in nature.
A Design System
Permaculture ethics, root practices and principles are those of nature herself, and can be applied to the garden, the farm, and indeed any living system including human structures.Permaculture is also known as regenerative design or ecological agriculture... permanent agriculture.
Based on Nature
We Are Part of the System
in practice, permaculture also cultivates a way of being that tends to go much deeper than simply a system of ecological design. Somehow, by engaging with nature in intimate observation, we gradually become a part of the system and magically and necessarily engage in our own evolution and transformation.
Ethics, Principles and Practices
Everything is a Garden
The ethics, principles, and roots of permaculture practice, can go far beyond the garden or farm and into the invisible structures of our relationships with ourselves and others, as well as our community and organizational structures. By engaging in permaculture, one soon and eagerly applies the approach to other complex systems and challenges.
Care for Earth -- the source of all life.
Care for People --this why we garden in the first place
Return the surplus to Earth and people
