Permaculture is a creative design process based on whole-systems thinking informed by ethics and design principles. This approach guides us to mimic the patterns and relationships we find in nature and can be applied to all aspects of human life. By adopting these ethics and applying these principles in our daily life, we can make the transition from being dependent consumers to becoming responsible producers. This means building skills and resilience at home and in our local communities that will help us prepare for an uncertain future with less available energy.
