Permaculture is a word that is being used more and more these days, but what exactly is it?
Permaculture is a system of agriculture that focuses on creating sustainable, self-sufficient ecosystems. Rather than relying on harsh chemicals and plowing the land, permaculture relies on natural processes and trends to create a healthy environment.
For example, permaculture farmers might use companion planting to deter pests and encourage pollination, or they might use mulch to conserve moisture and suppress weeds.
By working with nature instead of against it, permaculture farmers are able to create thriving ecosystems that are better for the environment and their own health.
