What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a holistic interpretation of humanity’s integration with its ecosystems, as well as 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 that 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 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 social, economic and ecological problems.
