Permaculture

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments.

The ecological and biological processes of the land, plants, animals, nutrient cycles, climatic factors and weather cycles are all examined and incorporated into a productive, functional Permaculture System.

Elements in each system are viewed in relation to other elements and the outputs of one element become the input of another. Inhabitants’ needs are provided for though proven technologies for food, energy, shelter and infrastructure. Within permaculture systems work is minimized, “wastes” becomes resources, productivity and yields increase, and the environment is restored.

Permaculture aims to create stable productive systems that provide for human needs, harmoniously integrating the land with the people not only for today but also the future.

 

Sustainability of a system over its lifetime is measured by how well it can produce enough energy to maintain and duplicate
