What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is an ethical design system inspired by nature. It’s used to design regenerative human habitat. Permaculture designers use a set of ethics and design principles to provision for human needs including food, water, fibre, energy, shelter, and waste management while improving the health of ecosystems.
