Hi! Welcome to the Riseup! non commercial paradigm/free sharing Permaculture/Forest Garden/Farming forum.
Permaculture combines three key aspects:
1. an ethical framework
2. understandings of how nature works, and
3. a design approach
This unique combination is then used to support the creation of sustainable, agriculturally productive, non-polluting and healthy settlements. In many places this means adapting our existing settlements. In other cases it can mean starting from scratch. Both offer interesting challenges and opportunities.
The word ‘permaculture’ comes from ‘permanent agriculture’ and ‘permanent culture’ – it is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature. Permanence is not about everything staying the same. Its about stability, about deepening soils and cleaner water, thriving communities in self-reliant regions, biodiverse agriculture and social justice, peace and abundance.
One thing is for sure. Its a fascinating subject, with many aspects, and its still evolving. In this section of the website we present more details about the different aspects of permaculture, and examples of how it is being used in Britain and around the world.
The aim of this group:
…Is to provide an info exchange forum for non commercial/free sharing/pro indigenous people tribal give away paradigm type forest gardening etc interested/active people/groups particularly in a ‘cool temperate’ type climate. Unlike a lot of FG type forums this is planned to be quite a hippy type forum…exploring the boundaries (or lack of them) in the field – hence the research/material on cannabis in the mix for example; However the principles of garden design should also grounded in evidence and science – rather than mere guesswork/k00kery. There is also room here for related Mother Earth subjects.
