the development of agricultural ecosystems that are sustainable & self-sufficient

 

Permaculture is not a new idea - in fact, it is the oldest approach to agriculture.  Horticulturalists of times past - before commercial monoculture, pesticides and modern science - looked to nature for guidance on how to cultivate their crops.  

The permaculture approach to growing and farming has gained new popularity over the past decades as we've become more aware of our collective environmental impact.  Our society exists in a state of perpetual imbalance.  High yields, low costs, and over-consumption are prioritized across industries, from the “fast fashion” we wear to the “fast food” we eat. 

Permaculture offers new perspectives on the challenges we currently face - in agriculture, community-building, equal access to food, and social justice - especially in densely-packed, urban areas.
