The word Permaculture, derived from the words “permanent” and “agriculture”, is used to describe a set of ethical and design principles for creating sustainable and productive systems that can be used by anyone, anywhere. Permaculture integrates land, resources, people and the environment through mutually beneficial synergies, imitating the no-waste, closed loop systems of the natural world. Born as a system for designing agricultural landscapes that work with nature, it has today a broader meaning: its set of ethics and design principles can, in fact, be applied to all aspects of human life, from gardening to ecological building, from education to economics and communities. Permaculture is a creative and complex design process that requires holistic thinking and mindful observation of the environment, which mimics the patterns and relationships found in nature in order to design a system which will ultimately benefit all living and non living beings.
Here at Casa Nacura, we use Permaculture principles to manage our 10 hectares of land by applying holistic solutions to our needs. We also offer consultation and sporadic training in the form of workshops. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if you would like to visit. You can also subscribe to our mailing list and stay updated on our events.
