  • Permaculture is more than just gardening. It is an integrated system of ecological design that helps humans create sustainable and regenerative systems, cultures, and ways of living. Permaculture teaches us to optimize our footprint and then maximize our handprint. After meeting our needs in healthy ways, we can maximize impact in our communities by applying the permaculture design principles to both the ecological and social realms.
