We are a group of permaculturists, making our way from one permaculture project to anther to gain experience for our own project. On this blog we share the know-how we are gaining along the way in easily digestible step-by-step how-to guides. These are simple and effective permaculture methods and techniques that you can use in your daily life.

About Permaculture

Permaculture can be understood as a holistic philosophy that encompasses humans, the land with all its beings, as well as the connection between the the two. The central element of permaculture is responsibility: toward oneself, toward other people and beings, toward the land, and toward the planet as such. Permaculture understands our planet and all its beings as a whole: a system that can only function if all its elements are respected and nurtured. In applying permaculture, both on a small and on a large scale, it has proved has proved to be an alternative that allows to produce food sustainably, while at the same time counteracting global problems such as water shortages and the destruction of soils.
