Permaculture is a design system that can be used to design anything but is mainly used to layout and plan farms and gardens in a highly evolved ecological way. There are many great resources on the internet about permaculture but many contain a lot of fluff and lovie dovie type stuff. I am going to do a series of articles describing key ideas, concepts, people, and practical applications of principles.
Permaculture was developed in Australia by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in the 1970s. Permaculture is a portmanteau of permanent agriculture, and permanent culture. The whole idea is to try to create systems that don’t deplinish resources but actually add value back into the system. Below are a few lists of things I will write articles about.
- Core Ethics (set of 3)
- Design Principles (set of 12)
- Designing from Patterns (herb spiral, keyhole beds, sheet mulching)
- David Holmgren
- Bill Mollison
- Sepp Holzer
- Geoff Lawton
