PERMACULTURE MAGAZINE: Practical solutions for self-reliance
Have you heard about permaculture? If you’re just getting started, here’s a good resource. The following is an excerpt from Permaculture Magazine:
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is an innovative framework for creating sustainable ways of living.
It is a practical method of developing ecologically harmonious, efficient and productive systems that can be used by anyone, anywhere.
By thinking carefully about the way we use our resources – food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs – it is possible to get much more out of life by using less. We can be more productive for less effort, reaping benefits for our environment and ourselves, for now and for generations to come.
This is the essence of permaculture – the design of an ecologically sound way of living – in our households, gardens, communities and businesses. It is created by cooperating with nature and caring for the earth and its people. Visit the Permaculture Magazine website for more inspiration.
