Event Description

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a holistic interpretation of human’s integration with their eco-systems and a design science used to optimize the health of individuals, communities, our watersheds and species that live around us. According to Bill Mollison, “permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non material needs in a sustainable way.”
The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather than against nature and allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions. Permaculture is a global movement that is providing solutions to many of the world’s many social, economic, and ecological problems.BillMollison
