  • What is Permaculture?
  • What is Permaculture?
      • A regenerative design system that is ecologically enriching and benefiting humans modeled from nature

  • Who is Permaculture?
  • a set of design principles
  • mimicking nature
  • a contraction of: "permanent agriculture" or "permanent culture"
  • a cultivated ecology
  • harnessing the working principles of wildness, evolved over millions of years, ...and letting them work in the garden
  • less work for greater yield and more pleasure
  • a practical frame of reference to gardening and working with land
  • woven together to create a resilient system. a holistic collection of strategic design patterns...
  • What kind of strategies and patterns?
  • Observe and Interact A 4-D Process
