Currently, this site consists of a library of links to permaculture-related information, although will over time be developed into a full information resource.
What is Permaculture?
The Ethics of Permaculture:
Care of people
Care of the earth
Distribution of surplus to assist others.
Permaculture is a design concept initiated by Bill Mollison and David Holmgrem circa 1978, that seeks to create sustainable and self-sufficient farming systems that mimic the structure and function of natural ecosystems.
By focusing on the integration of landscape and people, permaculture seeks to meet human needs while promoting the health and well-being of the surrounding environment.
Constraints on the teaching of permaculture to graduates of the Permaculture Institutes, seeks to ensure consistency of study and adherence to established curriculum and principles.
