Permaculture: a method of living which uses nature’s resources and cycles

Permaculture is a method of living which uses nature’s resources and cycles to meet our needs while maintaining a healthy relationship with the environment.


Permaculture is sustainable and can be easily implemented into everyones daily life. The ethics are rooted in an ethical framework for human development and are based on clear values:

Care for all people and the planet: Permaculturalists aim to create a better world, not just a sustainable one. We believe that the goal of permaculture is to help us learn to live in a healthier and more satisfying way with less damage to our environment. Our goal as humans is to live in harmony with nature. We need to care about each other, each other’s children and the world around us.


Permaculture uses nonviolence in all of its projects. It is about living in harmony with nature, not against it. Our aim is to maintain harmony with our surroundings and make the earth a more beautiful place to live. Permaculturalists respect and protect all living creatures, including ourselves. We do not believe that violence and war can solve problems.

Cooperation: Permaculture promotes cooperation among people and between people and nature. People are interdependent. We cannot change the environment without working together, and we must care for each other. It is built on the principle that people should work together and cooperate with each other.

Autonomy and self-reliance: Permaculture respects the rights of individuals to choose how to live their lives, what they want to consume, and who they want to associate with. There is a fundamental respect for the autonomy of human beings. We do not have to be dependent on others for our sustenance, for we can live a healthy and satisfying life without any money or government support.

Diversity: There is no one type of culture that is best suited to our world. The human culture should be diversified and adapted to the diverse environments in which we live. Each culture has its own unique strengths and weaknesses, and no culture can be defined by the values and customs of another. This means that we need to recognize and respect all cultures in order to learn from them.


Self-sufficiency: Permaculture aims to create a sustainable society by creating a self-reliant community where everyone contributes to the well-being of all.  It is about growing our own food and producing our own energy so that we are independent of outside sources. We believe that we cannot expect others to care for us if we do not take care of ourselves. Permaculturalists promote the ideals of self-reliance, local independence, and community self-sufficiency.

Permaculture respects nature as a living system, and all living creatures as a part of nature.

We have to balance our interactions with the environment.

We do not want to use more than what is needed and cause damage to the planet. We should practice sustainable living with the aim to keep the ecosystem intact and improve it.

I believe that permaculture can change the world. It is a method that can help people develop their own sustainable lifestyle. It is not only about the physical aspects, but it also deals with the mental and emotional aspects of living. I am interested in the theory and concepts behind permaculture. How it teaches us about how to live sustainably by looking at our surroundings and taking into consideration all the aspects of our lives. It is about self-reliance. It is a practice which aims to help people become independent of others. It teaches us how to create an independent life without relying on others for help.


Permaculture is not only a way of living, but it is a way of thinking.

We must know that we are living on earth as part of nature, but not dominating nature. We should work with nature, and work together with others.

Permaculture is more than just a set of ideas and skills; it is more than just another gardening technique. It is about living harmoniously and building sustainable communities. It is about creating a community and making sure that the community is self-sufficient.

People tend to forget about the importance of working together to change the world for the better. Permaculture is about learning to live in harmony with nature. We have to think about what we are doing because everything we do affects our environment. We have to respect nature and other living beings. When people live in an area where they cannot provide all their needs, they tend to take from others or use their services. Permaculture teaches us to live and work in an independent way and not to depend on others.

Permaculture teaches us that we should not waste things.

Waste creates problems.

People must learn to live by recycling everything that they can, and learning how to reuse things. Permaculture teaches us about the importance of recycling.


The whole idea of permaculture is about changing the world for the better. Permaculture promotes the sharing of knowledge and encourages us to take charge of our lives. Permaculture is about helping people be more self-reliant. We have to understand that life is precious, and we have to look after it. The main problem is our consumption of the earth’s resources. We have to learn to create a new type of community.

Permaculture is about creating an independent life without depending on others. Permaculture teaches us that we must not waste things and that we have to recycle everything we can. Permaculture teaches us to build sustainable communities. We should create an environment where we can live and grow food in harmony with nature.


Permaculture is about working together as a community. It is about respecting nature, working with other living beings, and thinking about how we can improve our life. Permaculture teaches us that we should use our skills to make things, instead of being dependent on things made by others.
