The principles of Permaculture are commonly associated with a rural or agrarian landscape, but they are applicable in everwhere.
It is an adaptable set of problem-solving and decision making ethics based on the patterns and systems of nature. When we use this approach it creates a fundamental shift in our attitude towards crisis and abundance and how to create innovative, sustainable solutions.
