  • Permaculture Permaculture is a ecologically based design

    system for deliberately creating environments

    with inherent diversity, dynamic stability, and

    resilience.

    Enabling the human population as ecological

    generation agents rather than destructive

    consumption agents.

    The potential is as endless as the suns energy

    and population growth

  • Permaculture ... is all about combining age old

    truths and skills with new and innovative

    thinking and technologies people, plants and

    landscapes growing together , designing and

    nurturing a healthy community along the way. -

    Costa Georgiadis

    Permaculture is practical, grass roots

    sustainability in action. It provides immediate

    tools for people to reduce their environmental

    footprint and build resilient communities.

    Josh Byrne, Gardening Australia

  • "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of

    thinking we used when we created them. Einstein

    Permaculture's founder Bill Mollison suggests asking

    questions in a different manner.

    Instead of looking at land and saying,

    What can I take from this land ?

    ask

    What does this land have to give?

    The first immediately puts you at war with nature and in

    competition, the later directs and encourages us to work with

    nature to increase the yield of the system for both parties.
