Permaculture is a framework for working toward greater sustainability that uses ecological principles to integrate food and energy production, structures, and community. Its aim is the creation of sustainable human settlements that are harmoniously woven into the environment and that have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.Steve Whitman is a professional planner and certified Permaculture Designer. Additionally, during the past six years, Steve has been teaching international field-study courses in sustainability, permaculture, and ecovillage design. We hope to see you there.
