Permaculture is a worldwide movement to design a sustainable society. "Sustainable" means ecologically balanced, economically sound, and socially just.
This discussion group is open to all. Our intention is to be a supportive community for people who find value in the permaculture design principles and who wish to practice these principles in their everyday lives. You're welcome to join this group whether or not you've taken a Permaculture Design Certificate course.
We believe that permaculture can sustainably meet all human needs: food, water, shelter, energy, transportation, community. Permaculture design is based on three ethics: 1) care of the earth; 2) care of people and all other species; and 3) limit consumption; share surplus.
