What is permaculture?
Permaculture is based on the following three ethical foundations:
- People care: To show concern for humans
- Earth care: To show concern for planet earth as a whole
- Fair share: To share the share resources justly between humans and animals so that consumption remains within the limits
Permaculture is a system of different social and agricultural methods based on existing ecological relationships between plants, animals, and humans. Permaculture aims at maintaining a sustainable supply of food with the minimum effort applied. The ‘Transition town’ initiative is a good example of the implementation of this technique. This initiative includes community enterprises like community garden, car sharing, and energy cooperatives etc.
a) For the environment
– Permaculture is a planning system which offers good solutions towards sustainable use of God given resources.
– Reduction of greenhouse CO2 with the development of humus in the soil.
– Ecosystem repair. There are many examples in different climate zones where the implementation of permaculture technique led to restoration of a damaged ecosystem.
b For the community
– Self-sufficient and sustainable community.
– The community works in a mutually beneficent way.
c) For the public institutions
– Permaculture initiatives can act as social focal points where public institutions can better reach out to the community.
– These initiatives can have a binding effect on the community.
