permaculture





A design for sustainable living with respect to land use and landscaping: the word comes from the words "permanent agriculture" and "permanent culture" and describes the sustainability of the design methods. The philosophy and principles of permaculture copy life systems in nature and use energy in the most efficient way possible. Permaculture can be applied to any system, from garden to home, whether urban or rural.
