What is Permaculture anyway?
Permaculture is the application of a set of principles and ethics to care for the whole Earth and all of its inhabitants. Originally from the term permanent agriculture, but has expanded for applications to all landscape scales.
As described by Permaculture practitioner and educator Andrew Millison, “Permaculture design is a method of landscape planning that can be applied at scales from the home garden to city block to village to farm. It is an ethically based whole-systems design approach that uses concepts, principles, and methods derived from ecosystems, indigenous peoples, and other time-tested practices to create sustainable human settlements and institutions.”
At the center are three ethics; Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share
These are the foundation to all components in the practice, ensuring we are able to care for the Earth now and for future generations.
