The ethics, principles, and roots of permaculture practice, can go far beyond the garden or farm and into the invisible structures of our relationships with ourselves and others, as well as our community and organizational structures. By engaging in permaculture, one soon and eagerly applies the approach to other complex systems and challenges.
While Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is essentially an ecological design framework for the garden or farm... once we begin engaging as nature does, in thoughtful observation, we discover that permaculture is much much more.
We enter into an unfolding of abundance... we improve our relationship with the land by observing and imitating nature. We become part of the unfolding system and enter into a new way of being in the world.
