We are a collective of permaculture enthusiasts and on this blog we share some of the concepts and practical know-how we are gaining on our life-journeys. This blog is all about sharing ideas about tools and concepts, our own experiences and viewpoints as well as simple and effective permaculture methods and techniques that you can use in your daily life.

Permaculture

Permaculture is a holistic philosophy that encompasses humans, the land with all its beings, as well as the connections between them. 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. Permaculture is a mindset that encourages finding practical solutions that are appropriate to problems or outcomes, specific to a given location in a certain context at a given time.
