Permaculture Principles

Permaculture principles provide us with a wonderful set of guidelines that can be used in designing sustainable systems.

These principles form the back bone of permaculture designing, in any climate, and at any scale  and are based on the resilience of natural systems. They have been derived from the thoughtful observation of nature and from earlier work by ecologists, landscape designers and environmental science. There are several sets of principles but we tend to use those developed by David Holmgren - one of the founders of permaculture.

"Ben and Lee enthused me with permaculture ideas back at an initial introductory day. Now I've just completed the certificate course where Ben's amazing teaching/learning styles and Lee's knowledge and experience were fundamental to my enthusiasm. What is impressive is that their lifestyles and sites are fantastic examples of permaculture in practice. What they speak they practice and draw from experience in their organisation of teaching and learning. Go learn from them and have fun."
