What is Permaculture?


Permaculture can be best described as a collaborative (wiki-style) project in which people around the world collectively design solutions to the problems of building a sustainable future. Its theory underpins the ideas behind the Transition Town idea.

Permaculture’s strength lies in its strong ethical foundations- Earth Care, People care, Fair Shares- and its many Principles including: collaboration over competition, thoughtful action rather than reaction, valuing the marginal and designing from patterns to details – ideas that people across the globe can use simply wherever they are, and in whatever they’re doing.  Always with a local flavour, it draws from indigenous knowledge and vernacular styles as well as from current science and modern design.

Permaculture is a grassroots movement growing every year.  Come and be part of the solution -BE THE CHANGE you want to see in the world.  After all – We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
