Ever wonder what  is permaculture – then read this blog post to get started.

Permaculture is what we use to tell us what to do – Larry Santoyo

Permaculture is an ecological design system. It is an approach to finding solutions for sustainability in all our undertakings – a way of looking at such questions as “How do I build an ecologically sound home?”, “How do I decrease my own ecological footprint?”, “How do I direct my money to do good work that restores communities and local economy?”, “How do I grow my own food and create life-affirming conditions for other living things, instead of relying on commercial food supply and all its vices?” – to name a few. Permaculture teaches us how to design natural homes, how to create abundant gardens, plant food forests, how to include backyard animals, how to build biodiversity to protect wildlife, regenerate degraded landscapes and ecosystems, harvest rainwater, develop ethical economies and communities, and much more. As an ecological design system, permaculture focuses on the interconnections between things more than individual parts.

Permaculture relies on ethics, design methodology and numerous design principles
