What is permaculture?

Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is a set of design tools, methodologies and principles that allow us to enrich and diversify landscapes, our communities, towns and villages to be in harmony with nature and to provide an abundance of everything we humans truly require. Guided by ethics, Permaculture aims at creating a permanent culture – lifestyles our planet Earth and its resources can sustain for generations to come. The design principles of Permaculture are very versatile and can be applied to any design task ranging from ethical business development, house design, gardens, creating lively communities and creative solutions to generate energy, catch water and to minimize waste, to name a few.
