What’s Agroecology and permaculture?
Agroecology is an approach to agriculture and to meeting people’s need for food, which gives particular attention not only to the important goal of productivity, but also and equally to the goals of sustainability, resilience, and equity.
Permaculture is a design science grounded in natural patterns and rhythms. Permaculture provides a set of ethics and principles which allows designers to create or participate in systems, whether that’s social systems or ecosystems, in a way which “works with nature, not against nature.” Find out more via the Permaculture Association.
