Permaculture is the conscious design of agriculturally productive ecosystems. It helps design intelligent agricultural systems which meet human needs whilst enhancing biodiversity, reducing our impact on the planet, and creating a fairer world for us all. It was created in the 1970’s by Bill Mollison, an Australian ecologist. Through his observation of nature and its natural systems of working together, he came up with some important insights. Those insights gave birth to a design system that facilitates the creation of a sustainable ecosystem that allows nature to do the work for you.
