What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a system of conscious design that mimics the patterns and relationships of nature to provide for local human needs. It can be applied to anything from growing food on an apartment balcony to managing a broadscale farm to designing an industrial process to running a community economic development project.

Permaculture in New Zealand is the oldest national permaculture organisation in the world. Originally called Permaculture New Zealand, it was incorporated on 6 Oct 1985.
