What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a holistic design process, using ecology as a basis for designing integrated systems: food production, community, economics, housing, with an embued ethic of caring for the earth, caring for people and sharing the surplus. That's asking us to limit our consumption and design for abundance and then share that abundance with each other.

We can also apply the principals to design our life. Using thoughtful observation look at your daily practices. What elements contribute to a healthy life and which do not? Waste= food. What areas of your life are there wastes? How can they feed into another system?

This is not just organic gardening, it's the garden of our lives. Understand how nature works and then apply it to our lives. Cleaning waste water. Experimenting with alternative fuels. How can we change the patterns of our behavior to match nature's systems?

The number one most prohibitive impediment to the health and healing of the human body is the… Continue
