What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is sustainable, and reparative, land use design. The result is agriculturally productive ecosystems which are diverse, stable and meet human needs (materials, energy, shelter, food, water and more). Working with nature rather than against nature means maximizing results and minimizing work. Asking many functions from each element and providing many supports for each element creates a stable system. The land and its occupants are integrated harmoniously.

Permaculture design can be applied to any scale of project from small yard to entire countries. The beneficial relationships between the elements are emphasized. The wastes become resources. Productivity and yields increase and environments, and stability, are restored.
