Permaculture is a thinking system. How can we create permanently regenerative culture? And also, permanently regenerative agriculture? In ways that sustain our communities, without screwing the planet?
The answers lie, as always, in taking our cues from natural systems and indigenous knowledge. In all kinds of ways. We all have a lot to learn.
We need to become holistic thinkers when we plan and design our actions – on every scale.
Permaculture is ecological systems theory. Permaculture is also a goal, an intention and an outlook. A way of approaching things.
We all aspire to live in a state that offers everyday comfort, good things to eat, beautiful surroundings, well-designed infrastructure, meaningful livelihoods and a future for our families. Preferably not at the expense of others, and definitely in a way that doesn’t damage our planet.
