Some people might think that living a Permaculture lifestyle means going back to peasant farming. Actually it is the opposite. Permaculture steps beyond the industrial era, beyond the technological era and into a balancing era.
The two core ethics of Permaculture are People Care and Planet Care. These ethics are balanced beautifully by the use of high-efficiency low-cost designs. It is the focus on intelligent design, awareness and use of Biomimcry and constant search for efficiency that drives the long list of Permaculture achievements.
There have been huge gains in solar power, responsible composting systems, bio-diesel fuel from algae, Plastic-eating bacteria and many recent discoveries that give us strides in efficiency. Science is fast catching up with Permaculture ethics, realising that only through balance can we have resilience and true sustainability.
In the quietly revolutionary 70s hippie-era ‘alternative technology’ made massive improvements in the lives of many people. Simple little modifications to ancient old techniques led to new inventions like The Rocket Stove, Bio-char, bio-gas fuel, Humanure and many domestic experiments in Solar and wind which are now commercially viable.
