Permaculture integrates land, resources, people, and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies, imitating the no waste, closed-loop systems seen in diverse natural systems.
Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people — providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.
Permaculture Institute Inc. is dedicated to the promotion of Permaculture by offering Permaculture Design Courses, Teacher Training Retreats, and The Peoples Diploma. The Institute’s work uses education and demonstration to accomplish our mission of training the next environmental and social change makers in the life-enhancing practice of Permaculture Design.
