Sustainability | Growing | Permaculture | Environment

When people ask me what I do, I tell them that I am a Permaculture designer and teacher. The most common response that I get is 'Perma-what'? The simple answer is that Permaculture is a 'sustainable design system that embraces and follows the laws of nature'.

However this doesn't go anywhere near explaining the depth and breadth of what Permaculture is. It isn't only a system for sustainable land use, it is also a system for sustainable living.  It is perhaps the only design system that has 'ethics' implicit at its core.

'Permanence' + 'Culture' = 'Permaculture' - could this system change the world? Find out and decide for yourself.
