"Permaculture is about designing sustainable human settlements. It is a philosophy and approach to land use which weaves together microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management, and human needs into intricately connected, productive communities."
Dan Equinoss of High Tide Permaculture Design was kind enough to call in and explain how it works.
