Permaculture

Permaculture is to create ecosystems that - without the external input of water, nutritiens and energy - offer a living habitat for humans and animals.

Permaculture is combining trees, bushes and vegatable in a way, that more biodiversity is created that sustains itself. Todays industrial agriculture is based on heavy oil powered machines, chemical pesticides and fertilizers as phosporus and potash - finite ressources that will become scarce the next decades. meanwhile they harm soils, waterstreams, biodiversity and climate. Today few on the countryside produce the food for many in the cities which have lost the connection to it. There are better ways: Permaculture produces 3 to 4 times as much as industrial agriculture, GMO's and Co. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), Urban Agriculture and Permaculture are the future - and beautifull - ways.

„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
