Introduction to Permaculture

Summary information
Summary: 

he word permaculture derives from “permanent agriculture” and “permanent culture”. In practice it is sustainable land use design, based on an understanding of systems in nature and ethical principles. Permaculture design creates stable productive systems to provide food, shelter, energy and community in ways that are healthy for the environment and us.
