Live Sustainably

Permaculture is an ethics-based approach to design and creative thinking that encourages living one’s life in a sustainable way with the environment around them, and shifting the way societies function to be more thoughtful and in tune with their natural surroundings.

Through this ethical thinking process, people can mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature and apply them to agriculture, ecology, and habitation practices through the use of education, technologies, and economics.

These approaches allow us to be less resource and energy-dependent on a global consumer-based system, and instead build skills and resilience within smaller regional communities.  This helps people engage with the local environment and ecosystem in a respectful manner, regardless of the location, climate conditions, or resources available.
