About Permaculture & Sustainability

Permaculture

Permaculture is a design science rooted in the observation of natural ecosystems, and whose objective is to create landscapes that are regenerative and provide for the needs of human settlements.

Australian ecologists Bill Mollison and David Holmgren developed the term in 1978; it comes from the contraction of “permanent agriculture”.

Aa set of 3 ethics and 12 principles guides the design of permaculture systems.

Veganic Permaculture

In short, veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude all forms of animal cruelty and exploitation. 

Veganic permaculture hence avoids the intentional use of animals and their by-products, while traditional permaculture often integrates chicken and other farm animals for products or services.
