Permaculture Design is a method of land planning that works at scales from garden to farm and village to city. It is an ethically based holistic design system that uses principles derived from ecosystems, native peoples, and time-tested ways to create sustainable settlements and organizations. Although rooted in agriculture, Permaculture design is interdisciplinary, touching on many subjects including regional planning, ecology, animal husbandry, horticulture, appropriate technology, architecture, and international development.
