What is Permaculture?
Defining the term permaculture is no easy task. The term was originally coined by Bill Mollison of Australia in the 1970’s, to mean “permanent agriculture” but this definition eventually evolved to mean “permanent culture”. Permaculture is a design science for creating sustainable human environments developed through observation and analysis of natural systems. Permaculture includes energy efficient building design, restoration and creation of ecosystems, organic food production, wastewater treatment, recycling, restoring ecosystems, rainwater harvesting, renewable energy, land stewardship, community building and more. Permaculture is focused on the relationships between these elements in the system rather than the individual elements. It is about working with nature rather than trying to conquer it. Permaculture design mimics nature and is used to create site specific ecosystems. Permaculture provides positive solutions to the world’s problems. This is something each and everyone of us can do to make this world a better place, take responsibility for ourselves, and ensure our children have a future.
