• What is Permaculture?

    Permaculture, also known as ecological or regenerative design, offers a path-- a design for living in complex changing systems using principles found in nature.

    In a Word: Nature

    Nature's Own Systems

    Permaculture ethics, root practices and principles are those of nature herself, and can be applied to the garden, the farm, and indeed any living system including human structures.
    Permaculture is also known as regenerative design or ecological agriculture... permanent agriculture.

    Evolution and Transformation

    We become part of the system we observe

    in practice, permaculture also cultivates a way of being that tends to go much deeper than simply a system of ecological design. Somehow, by engaging with nature in intimate observation, we gradually become a part of the system and magically and necessarily engage in our own evolution and transformation.

    Everything is a Garden

    A way to address complex challenges

    The ethics, principles, and roots of permaculture practice, can go far beyond the garden or farm and into the invisible structures of our relationships with ourselves and others, as well as our community and organizational structures. By engaging in permaculture, one soon and eagerly applies the approach to other complex systems and challenges.
