Permaculture

Permaculture is the creation of ecosystems that - without the external input of water, nutritients or energy - offer a sustainable habitat for humans and animals.

Permaculture is the practice of combining trees, bushes and vegatables in such a way that a greater variety of biodiversity is created that is self-sustaining. The industrial agriculture of today is based on heavy oil powered machines, chemical pesticides and fertilizers such as phosporus and potash, all finite ressources that will become scarce the next decades. All the while, harming soil quality, water streams, biodiversity and climate. Today a few people in the countryside produce the food for everybody in the cities who have lost their connection to the land. There is a better way: Permaculture produces 3 to 4 times as much as industrial agriculture, GMO's. Co. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), Urban Agriculture and Permaculture are the future - and not to mention beautiful.

"Relatively self-reliant households are the basic building block of any culture that is viable over the long term without requiring war (stealing of resources) to sustain itself." - Ben Falk
