    Permaculture is a way of life that teaches humans to mimic natural structure.  It means creating natural homes, use rainwater, grow your own gardens, and to basically get back to the core concepts of nature.

    It is an approach to designing human settlements and agricultural systems that mimic the relationships found in natural ecologies. This method was first practiced by Austrian farmer Sepp Holzer in the 1960s and then scientifically developed by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren during the 1970s. The intent is that, training individuals with a core set of design principles can create settlements that reduce society’s reliance on industrial systems of production and distirbution. 

    The ethics and core values of permaculture are as followed:

    • Earthcare – recognising that Earth is the source of all life (and is possibly itself a living entity — see Gaia theory), that Earth is our valuable home, and that we are a part of Earth, not apart from it.
    • Peoplecare – supporting and helping each other to change to ways of living that do not harm ourselves or the planet, and to develop healthy societies.
    • Fairshare (or placing limits on consumption) – ensuring that Earth’s limitedresources are used in ways that are equitable and wise.
