Permaculture differs from other ecological and social movements because it’s core focus is design. It is not a lobby movement (although many of us may feel the need to lobby governments to achieve our community goals). It is not just about conserving our existing bio-diversity. It offers solutions that are based on consultation and seek a fair way to build a resilient future for humanity and for plant and animal life.
Permaculture design begins with ethics, optimism and planning. Permaculture design adapts dynamically as a result of keen observation and feedback. Each person’s design will be different but we all have the same ideals: to find a way to live that cares for other people and cares for the planet.
