What is Permaculture?
Recycling and growing organically are a great start to helping the environment, but they are just techniques for managing resources. For a real change, we need to alter our thinking by designing whole systems consciously (& conscientiously).
Permaculture observes the way nature creates complex, waste free, productive systems from scratch, and uses these cyclic techniques to produce landscapes and communities to meet our needs - both material (food, fuel, fibres, building materials) and non-material (building community cohesion and purpose).
Find out for yourself how permaculture techniques can help you live a more sustainable life, and get involved in building a more sustainable community. Topics covered:
