Permaculture is a CREATIVE DESIGN PROCESS that uses live systems and natural phenomena to create Stable, Comfortable and Sustainable human living environments. As an approach to holistic design, Permaculture can also be used to build reliable economies, functioning social projects, self-improvement programs and create esthetically pleasing artistic compositions.
