What is Permaculture?
The principles of permaculture were founded by Australian environmentalist Bill Mollison and David Holmgren. Mollison saw clearly that the way in which we have made use of the resources on our planet could not be sustained over time, and that the modern trends in industrialization of agriculture were serving to speed up the degredation and fertility of our agricultural land. The principles of permaculture make use of existing natural systems to ensure the most efficient and sustainable use of all resources within the system. Permaculture designs seek to create closed loops, where no energy is lost or wasted. by their nature, these systems are sustainable and regenerative.
A permaculture garden is designed to take into account all relevant factors for the land on which it will grow. In this way, the various elements can be placed in their optimal positions regarding sun, wind, rainfall, accessibility, aesthetics and climate. Plants are grouped in beneficial groupings, so that there is little or no need for additional fertilization. An established permaculture garden requires little maintenence from the gardener, and yields a large and rich harvest.
