Permaculture is a design methodology that is based on the wisdom within Nature to design in accordance with it rather than against it. It is based on a holistic, systems-based and integrated approach to designing systems, be they for food growing, homesteads, gardens, or even companies – it is a very versatile tool to be able to create more natural, holistic, humane and resource-efficient systems.
The three key principles of Permaculture are:
- Earth care
- People care
- Fair share
