What is permaculture?

    Permaculture is an approach to designing human settlements and perennial agricultural systems that mimic the relationships found in natural ecologies.The intent was that, by rapidly training individuals in a core set of design principles, those individuals could design their own environments and build increasingly self-sufficient human settlements — ones that reduce society’s reliance on industrial systems of production and distribution that Mollison identified as fundamentally and systematically destroying Earth’s ecosystems.

    Permaculture is an approach of designing spaces that tries to mimic natural systems by taking into account each element’s needs, products, and general role. It is the process of designing a space such that elements that naturally complement one another are placed close together. It tends to involve living a bit more lightly and taking advantage of the resources you have available, but not much more. For example, having a garden with complementary plants that is fed by rainwater that lands on your property and compost from your food remains (the compost provides nutrients to the soil which provides food for you, which produces waste for the compost).

    Permaculture is a contraction between “permanent agriculture” and “permanent culture.” It is also known as “ecological engineering” or “integrated farming.” It’s an idea of taking everything within a community (people, animals, plants, resources, farming, etc.) and making it into a functional, eco-friendly sort of “commune.” The main idea is making ecological landscapes that produce food. They also look for ways to conserve resources, using recyclig, energy-efficient buildings, and waste water treatment.
