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?

Alaska Permaculture Network

This social network is meant to catalyze connectivity and information sharing between Alaskans interested in practicing permaculture.

Start or join a discussion or group!
Upload files that are interesting, share links, photos, and videos.

In addition, the Anchorage Permaculture Guild, a subgroup of this network, meets on the first or second Sunday of the month at various people's houses. Please check the events to see when the next one is. The mission of the Anchorage Permaculture guild is to nurture a resilient, sub-arctic community by promoting, teaching, and practicing permaculture.

People in other communities are highly encouraged to start local groups of their own!

Jim Lister commented on Cindee Karns's event Urban Sustainability 5 Day Intensive!
"I can't afford the very high price, or the time off work, or the drive from Wasilla. I would pay $20 to watch videos of the classes online on a rainy day - or maybe join in on a live chat - if I am not busy in my garden or at work."
