Permaculture is a design science that creates pathways for humans to improve the health and resilience of both society and the environment. It is about observing your life and your surroundings, and changing them little by little to harmonize with the rhythms and flows of nature. Rather than consuming and destroying until social/economic/environmental collapse, permaculture leads us to the path of least resistance and most resilience. Permaculture systems are able to self-regulate, adapt, grow, heal, and provide for our needs and the needs of future generations.
