Permaculture

Permaculture Song (including the 9 principles)

What is Permaculture?

In a nutshell:

"Permaculture is a sustainable design system stressing the harmonious interrelationship of humans, plants, animals and the Earth. The core of permaculture is design and the working relationships and connections between all things." (Bill Mollison)
