What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is an ecological design system for creating sustained abundance for human communities without threatening the natural environment

AN ECOLOGICAL DESIGN SYSTEM

A design system for creating sustained abundance for human communities without threatening the natural environment.

It is working in partnership with nature, learning the lessons of ecology and applying them, through design, to the way we live.

Permaculture draws on ecological principles, the ingenuity and knowledge of traditional cultures and developments in natural and social sciences.

permaculture ethics

The ethics earth carepeople care and fair share form the foundation for permaculture design and are often found in traditional societies.

Ethics are mechanisms evolved through cultural norms that regulate self-interest, giving us a better understanding of good and bad outcomes for the wider world.

The greater the power of humans, the more critical ethics become for long-term cultural and biological survival.

practical applications

Permaculture has practical applications in many domains, from backyard to bio-regional, city to rural. 

It provides strategies to develop vibrant communities, sustainable food production, healthy ecosystems, energy-efficient homes, personally fulfilling lifestyles, and much more.

The practice of permaculture enables people to, over time, “create systems that are ecologically sound and economically viable, which provide for their own needs, do not exploit or pollute and are therefore sustainable in the long term.”
