Permaculture is . . .

January 27, 2012 § Leave a comment

Because yesterday’s film made me curious, I snooped around. Here’s what I found:

Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of the landscape with people providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. -Graham Bell, The Permaculture Way

A few resources:

Permaculture Institute

Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture

Permaculture & Ecological Design Program (video below)

If you do a quick google search you’ll find many permaculture design courses and certificate programs out there. Ooh, I’m having that hungry-for-knowledge feeling, aren’t you?

Have any of you had experience with permaculture? Has anyone taken a course, gotten a certificate, or researched this approach to agriculture and living? I’d be eager to hear from you!
