On todays show I talk about how permaculture, a term many of you have probably never heard of but is what really brought me back to the land.
Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems, which have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material need in a sustainable way.
The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather then against nature.
I talk about the prime directive of permaculture and the principle of cooperation. I also go into the three ethics of permaculture which are
1. care for earth
2. care for people
3. return of surplus
I also talk about the zones and layers of permaculture design and how all this is important to health and living a wellness lifestyle.
You won't want to miss this one!!!
I will leave you with this question, Could food be humanity's pathway to sanity?
