Permaculture Design Principles

We were able to sign up for the web content of the latest Winter Permaculture Design Course. Although we were not able to attend the full course we were given access to some amazing powerpoints, handouts and recorded discussion. Over-all it was awesome!

Everyone should look into Midwest Permaculture in Stelle, IL and get signed up for a Design Course.

Fundamental Permaculture Design Principles

Each function is supported by multiple elements.

Each element performs multiple functions.

The edge effect maximizes yield.
Abundance is unlimited.
Observe and Connect.
Accelerate succession.
Mistakes are tools for learning.
Use small scale, intensive systems.
We can turn problems into solutions.
