Permaculture is slowly gaining exposure in Lebanon - especially within circles of people interested in self-sufficiency and healthy living. But what is permaculture really and how can we apply it in our daily lives?
The philosophy of permaculture involves working with nature, instead of against it, to design efficient and regenerative systems that help us meet our needs, while respecting all supporting elements of an ecosystem and requiring minimal effort and interference.
In this Introduction to Permaculture session we'll take you through the origins, ethics and principles of permaculture, and give you an overview of the permaculture design methodology. You'll get to try out some of the analysis and design methods we use in permaculture (such as input/output analysis and zoning).
