Permaculture is a design process. It helps design intelligent systems which meet human needs whilst enhancing biodiversity. Reducing our impact on the planet, and creating a fairer world for us all.
“A sustainable system is any system, that in its lifetime, can produce more energy than it takes to establish and maintain it.” – Bill Mollison
Permaculture design is unique in that it works with an implicit set of ethics. Using the same design principles that are found in nature. Apply these principles to growing our own food and this can give us up to 7 times greater yield. Yes, you did read that right seven times more produce. In a system that needs far less maintenance.
