Permaculture – An ecological design system that originated in Australia in the latter half of the 20th Century. Now it is a global network of people who put its core principles of Earth Care, People Care & Need not Greed into practice by designing and living in sustainable ways in their homes, gardens, businesses and local communities. It may not always be called Permaculture now but the philosophy and practice is spreading, and covers a wide spectrum of interests.

A starting point could be reading The Permaculture Magazine and browsing and leading UK Permaculturist, Patrick Whitefield's website.

For information about the Permaculture Design Courses have a look The Permaculture Association's website.
