  1. 1. Permaculture Design
  2. 2. What is Permaculture? " “Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.” By Bill Mollison
  3. 3. Permaculture is the harmonious integration through systems management of all life kingdoms into agriculturally productive ecosystems and socially just environments, producing sound economic consequences. It’s a design science reflecting patterns in Nature that seeks to build interconnections allowing for energy efficiency and abundance of yield.

  23. 23. http://annualreport.syngenta.com/ en/overview/chairmans-letter.aspx While the financial crisis grabbed the headlines, the underlying challenge of ensuring food security for a growing world population remained central to the agenda of governments worldwide. The magnitude of this challenge was reinforced by the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) which announced in June that the combination of global economic slowdown and high food prices had pushed another 100 million people into a state of chronic hunger and poverty. The total number of people on the planet who are malnourished has now surpassed the one billion mark.

  27. 27. ...the greatest change we need to make is zones from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter." - Bill Mollison
