Permaculture Fundamentals One of the flaws in our current society is a lack of grounding. We have principles of freedom and prosperity, but they are not often honored or discussed in great detail. What makes permaculture work so well is because it is deeply rooted in ethics and principles based on natural ecosystems. Everything else we create must incorporate the ethics and principles to some degree. The ethics are simple and straightforward – care for the earth, care for people, and share the surplus. There’s no question as to what they stand for, whereas freedom and prosperity are murky territory. The twelve principles of permaculture give structure to the ethics, and guidance to your permaculture design, whether it be for an ecological garden, or an intentional community. In truth, regardless of whether you’re aware, all design expresses an intention. Materials that cannot be recycled are designed for the landfill, even if that wasn’t the core intention of the designer. The good thing is, nature has dreamed up many of the design solutions we need to create a sustainable, just world. All human creations are part of nature itself, and can benefit from incorporating ecological principles. Begin your understanding of permaculture with an in-depth look at how ethics and principles shape every aspect of design. Get the grounding you need to really live and work sustainably. http://www.permaculturedesigntraining.com/
