Permaculture is a design system for creating social, economic and ecologically sustainable settlements. These consciously designed landscapes mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature while yielding an abundance of food, fibre and energy.
Bill Mollison and David Holmgren created the permaculture design system in the late 1970s in Australia. Their visionary approach has inspired people to take action wherever they live, and has led to a global movement of sustainability.
David Holmgrem, environmental designer and author, says permaculture begins where you live with your own action and is essentially a “do it yourself” approach.
