COMING UP: Permaculture (Raleigh, NC & Americus, GA)
The word “permaculture” refers to a set of values and principles that utilize ecological designs and self-maintained natural systems. Thepoint is to give back – to our gardens, to the earth – in an attempt to balance out the destructive impact our own existence has on the immediate environment. The replenishment rhythms and systems in nature are used a guide in creating meaningful solutions for dailyliving.
While permaculture can be an approach to anything, it is typically based in agriculture and ecology, incorporating organic farm practices, agro forestry, integrated farming and natural building solutions. The core philosophies are cyclical: Care of the Earth, Care of People and the idea of Fair Share – taking only what you need.
