The essence of Permaculture is summed up by 3 ethics:

Care of the Earth | Care of the People | Share the Surplus

Permaculture is about designing ecological human habitats and production systems. It is a land use and community building system which strives for the harmonious integration of human dwellings, microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, and water into stable, productive communities.

The focus is not on these elements themselves, but rather on the relationships created among them by the way we place them in the landscape. This synergy is further enhanced by mimicking patterns found in nature.

It has been successfully used around the world to maximize food production, regenerate springs, cool homes without air conditioning, transform lives and reduce pollution, to name a few.

Over 50% of the world’s population now lives in urban centers and the number is growing. Adopting strategies to meet our needs in a sane and ethical way is critical. In this course, we will learn how to design those strategies.
