Permaculture

Permaculture is a method of designing the places where people live and work in a sustainable way, using nature’s patterns. It was developed in the 1970’s by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, with an ethical basis of care for the earth, care for people, and sharing the surplus. It combines the best of traditional wisdom with modern science to turn problems into solutions and transform people from dependent consumers to responsible, self-reliant producers. Small Waters Education has introduced Permaculture to many groups throughout Northern Illinois and Wisconsin through workshops, classes, presentations, and hands-on projects.
