What is Permaculture

Permaculture. Permanent culture. A permanent, abundant, regenerative, culture. 

Permaculture

per·ma·cul·ture
/ˈpərməˌkəlCHər/

noun
Permaculture is a design philosophy and set of practices which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fiber and energy for provision of local needs.

Worldwide Phenomena

Today, permaculture is practiced around the world, and its principles and practices have been applied to a wide range of contexts, including agriculture, forestry, urban design, and more.

“Although the problems in our world are increasingly complex, the solutions are embarrassingly simple.”

– Bill Molison
Co-Founder of permaculture design philosophy

The Process

With permaculture you stack functions of nature with the most important element being living soil as it is the foundation of life on earth and yet we are killing it with poisons. 

When we rejuvenate our soil and create an abundance of locally-grown food we reverse mass extinction, we reverse cancer, diabetes and heart disease. 

“We’re going to look back on this dark era of agriculture and shake our heads. How could we have ever thought it was a good idea to grow food with poisons.”

– Jane Goodall

The Obstacles

The progress of permaculture has faced obstacles from powerful political, economic, and social elites at both global and local levels. 

These elites prioritize their own interests over the well-being of society, hindering the adoption of local autonomy and self-reliance, which are vital for sustainability. 

Many people have noticed that the trend of consolidating smaller farms into corporate farms and centralizing food distribution among only ten major suppliers is part of this agenda.

“Control the food and you control the people.”
– Henry Kissinger

The Call-To-Action

Permaculture seeks to challenge the status quo and promote local autonomy and self-reliance.

We need to retake our food distribution systems, restart small farms and find local farmers that we support with subscription based services.

In essence, by investing in local, regenerative agriculture we build decentralized resilience and take out the tools of mass enslavement.
