Additional information about permaculture posted online:
Permaculture is a design system based on ethics and design principles which can be used to establish, design, manage and improve all efforts made by individuals, households and communities towards a sustainable future. The permaculture flower uses the evolutionary spiral path to link together the key domains required for this change.
These concepts are adapted from Permaculture Principles & Pathways Beyond Sustainability by permaculture co-originator David Holmgren.
In this episode is a discussion of Bill Mollison’s 5 Principles of Permaculture. They come from Permaculture: A Designers’ Manual.
- Work With Nature Rather than Against It
- The Problem is the Solution
- Make the Least Change for the Greatest Possible Effect
- The Yield of a System is Theoretically Unlimited
- Everything Gardens
Examples from my own experiences are given throughout.
