Permaculture aims to provide a real framework for a sustainable future. Some suggest that the term derives from 'permanent culture' and the need to create a culture that is ethical, aware, ecologically sound and all-encompasing to ensure the sustainbility (permanence) of life on the planet.
More than simply about 'natural gardening' (an aspect of permaculture that perhaps understandably receives greatest attention) the concept of Permaculture is holistic and applies to all aspects of life and the way we consciously choose to live.
Evidently we need to produce sufficient food for an expanding population, and we need to do this in a way that is ethical, sustainable, natural, non-toxic, healthy -- and is all above all undertaken in a way that generates most positive physical, psychological and spiritual impact for ourselves and all around us.
This requires time, observation and a growing acquaintance with 'how nature does things' and then using this wisdom, and intelligence we are blessed with, we have to apply natural techniques to further enhance the possibility of creating abundance where there was previously little.
Permaculture can rescue damaged land where mankind and natural disasters have created a void -- even desert can be reclaimed as tuned back into abundant pastures (see Geoff Lawton at work in the video above!).
Although the advocates and corporate interests that support the current disasterous system of mono-culture and centralized production and supply would pooh-pooh many ideas that permaculture promulgates -- because there is little or no profit in it for them -- an approach to food-production using permaculture techniques can result in the development of abundant natural forests of food, that require relatively little back-breaking 'gardening'; limited use of fuel-hungry, pollution-spewing technology; and eradicate the need for using any costly, toxic and damaging chemicals that poison the soil and kill its many smaller creatures that all play a vital role in the holistic success of the landscape and sustainability of life.
