Permaculture combines three key aspects:
1. An ethical framework
2. Understandings of how nature works
3. A design approach
This unique combination provides an ethical framework that is used to design regenerative systems at all scales – from home and garden to community, farm and bioregions.
The word ‘permaculture’ comes originally from ‘permanent agriculture‘ and ‘permanent culture‘ – it is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature.
Permanence is not about everything staying the same. It is about stability, about deepening soils and cleaner water, thriving communities in self-reliant regions, biodiverse agriculture, and social justice, peace and abundance.
Permaculture opens up a whole new world of how living systems interact with each other. Whether you are just curious, or feel your children would take an interest,or even if you have some land that you would like to see through a different lens, we are here to help!
Learn About Permaculture
We offer education in Permaculture in various forms.
The best way to start is to join a PermaBlitz event; this is a child friendly event that takes place at various locations around the island and is a great introduction to what Permaculture is about.
It may be possible to have someone visit your school or workplace. Please contact us and we will try to find a qualified presenter.
For those more serious about learning Permaculture, then we recommend diving into a PDC (Permaculture Design Course); contact us for more details.
