The word permaculture was originally coined to mean "permanent agriculture", but the term has grown to encompass a full range of concepts that support people health and earth health. Permaculture promotes community-building and ways in which that community can live in harmony with the natural processes of the earth.
Growing food-bearing plants to sustain us locally, using local materials to build what we need, living zero-waste, sharing supplies and labor, trading services, learning about the roles of animals, plants and insects that live in our environment, energy efficiency, catching rainwater and filtering it to drink are some of the things you'd find in a permaculture landscape.
