Permaculture studies allow students to create systems that are ecologically viable, which provide for their own needs, do not exploit or pollute, and are therefore sustainable in the long term.Mittwoch, 19.

Permaculture studies allow students to create systems that are ecologically viable, which provide for their own needs, do not exploit or pollute, and are therefore sustainable in the long term. Permacuture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments.Mittwoch, 19. Januar 2011 3
