|Back in 1976, Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren developed permaculture, a philosophy of sustainable agriculture and culture, grounded in practical design principles. Their ideas have had a big impact on the world of sustainable agriculture, and the eco-village concept.
Yesterday we held a very successful afternoon and evening cookery class and dinner at Crystal Waters Permaculture Village in Queensland.
It was a big group – 25 in all. Here’s some of us feasting on the results of our afternoon’s labour, in the lovely home of our hosts Ken and Linda.
In a nutshell, the philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with nature rather than against it.
