Permaculture Principle #3 – Obtain a Yield
Obtaining a yield just reminds us that any work that you do should be to accomplish something. A yield can mean food, a harvest, or it can also be other things. You can obtain a yield of timber to build with or it can be grasses to weave baskets with. A yield could also be plants with medical or herbal uses. This principle just reminds us to keep in mind having useful plants around and using plants that do have uses that are already around us.
